Eddie Staten

Aug. 30, 1929 — Aug. 11, 2014

Eddie Lee Staten, affectionately known as “Bean,” departed our world on Aug. 11, 2014, at Sutter Solano Medical Center in Vallejo, 19 days before his 85th birthday.

He was born Aug. 30, 1929, in Matherville, Miss., to the late Orange and Pearl Staten. Eddie united in holy matrimony to Annie Joyce Johnson on March 31, 1951. They enjoyed 63 years together. He joined the United States Air Force to provide a better life for his family. During his 20 years of service, he completed two tours to Vietnam. After retiring from the Air Force, Eddie worked briefly at the Concord Naval Weapons Station. He then spent a few years as a Vallejo city bus driver before returning to the Naval Weapons Station until he retired in 1993.

Eddie was an avid Los Angeles Dodgers fan. He also enjoyed playing bingo, poker and looked forward to going to Cache Creek every Wednesday to play the machines. He was a wonderful storyteller and would entertain family and friends with stories concerning his childhood and other adventures during his well-lived life. Children were important to him and he always stressed the importance of an education, something he was not able to complete.

Eddie is survived by his wife of 63 years, Annie Joyce; children, Dorothey (Henry) Staten Watson of Chandler, Ariz., Kim (Otis) Staten Varner of Fairfield; Keith Staten of Sacramento and Darren (Kari) Staten of Vancouver, B.C.; grandchildren, Aaron (Kim) King of Chandler, Ariz., Jared (Lauren) King of Chandler, Ariz., Danielle Varner of Sacramento  and Jordan Varner of Fairfield;  great-grandchildren, Anthony, Madison, Felicity and Joslyn of Chandler, Ariz.; brothers, Will Roy (Louvenia) Staten of Shubuta, Miss., Bennie (Donna) Staten of Shubuta, Miss., Robert Staten of Shubuta, Miss., and L. Wash (Sharon) Staten of Chicago; sister, Jean (Dennis) Hopkins Horne of Shubuta, Miss.; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Orange and Pearl Staten; brothers, R.B. Staten and A.T. Staten; and sisters, Jessie Wilson and Almeda Staten.

Visitation will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22, 2014, at Bryan-Braker Funeral Home, 1850 W. Texas St., Fairfield, Calif. A celebration of his life will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014, also at Bryan-Braker. A private burial will be held at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon.

The family would like to thank Vitas for their wonderful support during Eddie’s time of need.

Arrangements under the care of Bryan-Braker, 707-425-4697, www.bryanbraker.com.
