  • On November 5, 2017, Don R. Eddy died peacefully with his family and pet dog, Muffin by his side. His life's goal was reached and he was seeing Jesus face to face. Born in Kenova, West Virginia on December 16, 1935, Coach Eddy spent his life serving others and leading them to know Jesus. His passion for basketball allowed him to influence thousands of young people. After ending his collegiate coaching career at UTSA, he started a sport ministry camp throughout Texas and in twelve other states. Under Coach Eddy's directorship hundreds of students committed their lives to Christ each summer. As our "camp" family grieves, we take comfort in knowing that the ultimate Hustle Award Winner, has received his just reward and that his life's work was not in vain.Services for Coach Eddy will be held as follows:
