Obituary for EDDIE DUPPINS

Eddie Duppins entered into this life on April 26, 1951, born to the late William Duppins and Helen Creek Duppins, in Calvert County, Maryland. He peacefully closed his eyes and entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, into a place that has been wonderfully prepared for him. Eddie was a special child of God lovable, kind, friendly and very sharing. Eddie was preceded in death by his sister Virginia Duppins. Eddie received his education in the Calvert County public school system, graduating for Calvert Sr. High school in Prince Frederick MD. Even though he was a special education student he strived to make his family proud of his accomplishments. After graduating, Eddie became an employee at the Kenilworth Towers, Bladensburg, MD, where he worked for 23 years. He was special to his boss, coworkers and all the residents. Eddie was raised in the church by his parents who were faithful and diligent members of the Bethel Way of the Cross Church where the late Bishop Jacob A. Green was the pastor. The words of life pierced his heart and soul so deeply that he found himself at the altar declaring that he wanted to be baptized in the precious name of Jesus Christ on August 24, 1969. On that day he died to the sins of this world and began to walk in the newness of life with Christ Jesus. After the baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire, Eddie became actively involved in various ministries at Bethel that included the Usher Board, Youth For Christ, the Bethel Crusaders and the Young Adult Choir. In later years, Eddie and his mother moved their membership to Refuge Temple Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, Inc. in Washington, DC under the leadership of Bishop W.L. Bonner. At Refuge Temple he continued his faithfulness and dedicated service on the Refuge Temple Choir and the Usher Board. Eddie was a person of fun. His hobby was listening to great gospel choirs. He loved sports especially basketball and football. He was a true fan of the Dallas Cowboys, even though the Cowboys did not make the Super Bowl this year. After learning how to bowl from his sister Fran, he enjoyed beating her in some of their bowling games. Eddie will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He leaves to cherish his memories: four sisters, Frances Spriggs, Sadie Morsell (Michael), Mattie Hendon (James) and MaryAnn Williams (Ronald); one brother, William Duppins; nieces and nephews: Ephonia Green (Albert), Ronald Green, Hayley Green, Michelle Morsell, Renee Hendon, Leketia Lee (Rico), Camilitia Mullen, Selina Mullen, Crystal Mullen, Brigette Lancaster, Erin Duppins, Rayshawn Morsell (Felisha), Timothy Morsell, Corey Duppins (Maria), Damean Duppins (Melanie). Two family adopted sisters; Patricia Gorman and Gwendolyn Davis (Patrick); one family adopted brother, Ronald (Buddy) Fleming; one uncle, Maurice Creek (Helen); one aunt, Clarice Creek and a host of cousins and friends.
