Peter L. Eubanks
January 13, 1956 – June 9, 2019
Peter L. Eubanks, age 63, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 9th, 2019 surrounded by his loved ones. Pete was born January 13, 1956 in Oklahoma City to Diane Lowery and Arthur Maxted. At the age of 2, Pete’s family relocated to Forest Park, Georgia. He was a graduate of Forest Park High school in 1974. In 1979 he married Lynn, and they began their family. Over the next ten years they welcomed their three children Gair, Ashley, and Alli. During his life he mainly worked in the printing, auto parts, and auto repair businesses. He was well respected and liked due to his hard work and the fact that he was simply good at what he was doing. However, the most memorable attribute for most people would be his ability to make anyone laugh, put a smile on your face and make you feel like you had a friend for life. This typically came at your own expense thanks to his wicked sense of humor and his sarcastic wit, but you couldn’t be mad at him about it because you were probably laughing too hard. Pete was a loving husband, father, son, brother, father in law, loyal friend, and had a strong Faith in Christ. He had many titles that he wore proudly but in 2005 he became grandfather “Pop Pop”, and this could arguably have been his most valued title. He loved being Pop Pop to his 5 grandkids and his grand dogs. He spoiled them all, taught them all, and most importantly he loved them all with every ounce of love that God had placed in his heart. If you knew Pete, you knew that he loved boxer dogs. His own dogs and his grand dogs were boxers and you could say that he was the “Boxer Whisperer”, the dogs simply loved him more than they loved anyone else. He was an avid collector. His collections range from his report cards from school, letters, birthday cards, and the list goes on from years past. If it was a document that had to do with his or his family’s history, chances are he has it in the most original condition possible. He also loved automobile racing and once traveled the country with his son, each as crew members on a race team, he always enjoyed sharing stories about those trips. If you had a racecar or a car that went fast, there was a good chance Pete was going to be involved. He was a great friend to many and was always willing to spend his time helping others or teaching others about things he was knowledgeable about. He is survived by his father Arthur Burke Maxted, Wichita, KS. His three children, Peter Gair Eubanks (Wife Kim), McDonough; Ashley L. Brown (Husband Randy), Locust Grove; Allison Eubanks and Fiancé Brett Kempton, McDonough. His four siblings, Laurie D. Eubanks, Denver, Co; Debrah E. Walters, Denver, Co; Darrell C. Eubanks, Brookhaven, Ga; Todd Eubanks, Denver, Co. His 5 grandkids, Braxton, Lexi, Ella, Easton, Paisley, his grand dog Sadie. His multiple nieces, nephews, and close extended family members. He is proceeded by his mother Diane L. Bowan. His best dog Joey and his grand dog Hagen. A memorial service will be held at 3pm Thursday, June 13th, 2019 at Harvest Baptist Tabernacle. 1974 Walt Stephens Rd, Jonesboro, GA 30236. Officiated by Dr. Jody Shaw.

Lived next to the Eubanks for years when we first bought our house in Rex. Was glad to have y'all as neighbors. Pete helped keep an eye on our place when we did our last tour in Germany and came back to retire from the Army. He helped me out when I needed things done when Don was not at home for weeks at a time. Was sorry to see him and his family move away. We have fond memories of Pete and this family.
