Eddy Burnette lost his very long battle with addiction on February 9, 2022. He struggled to find peace on this earth. Born on March 7, 1965 to Claude and Barbara Ann Burnette, Eddy graduated from Connersville high school with the class of 1983.

Eddy worked as a truck driver for Miller Dairy and later with other trucking companies. He eventually bought his own truck and became an owner/operator until becoming disabled. Eddy was an extremely gifted and talented guitarist. He played unbelievably well from a very young age and had perfect pitch.

Eddy was truly a good person. He had a good heart and hated to see people suffering and in need. When possible, he would try to be of help. He craved the respect that his addiction cost him.

He leaves behind two daughters, Amber (Brent) Wilber, Mary Burnette; four grandchildren Kyleen Wilber, Jackson Wilber, Kennedy Issac, and Owen Blakely; his sister Claudette (Rick) Cornett; two nephews Travis (Nikki) Cornett and Zach Cornett; four aunts; and many cousins.

Eddy was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and several cousins.

The family will receive friends from 11:00 a.m. until the time of service at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 17, 2022 at Miller, Moster, Robbins Funeral Home. Burial will follow in Glen Haven Cemetery, Richmond.
