-----------------------------


Edgar ,”Eddie,” Queener, 68, died Thursday, March 18 2021,at home, with many of his family at his side.  In 1987, Eddie and his family moved to Hawkins County so he could accept a position at Hales Springs Inn in Rogersville.  He later worked at Amato’s Restaurant in Kingsport and for 14 years at Woodridge Hospital in Johnson City.  After retiring, he began volunteering at the Kitchen of Hope cooking meals for the hungry and homeless in Kingsport. 


Eddie was preceded in death by his mother, Barbara Ford Queener, his father, E.L. Queener, Sr. and step mother, Lea Queener and by his sister, Camilla Queener Shaw.  He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Eileen Hanrahan Queener of Rogersville;  a daughter, Alice Queener, sons Joshua and wife Megan; Robert and wife Dawn; John, all of Knoxville and David and wife Cate of New Market, Alabama.  He also leaves seven grandchildren: Camilla Kalthoff of The University of the South at Sewanee TN, Ethan, Drew, Jack and Sam Queener of Knoxville; Anna and Joseph Queener of New Market, Alabama.  He also leaves a stepsister, Sharon Harrison of Cordova, TN.


Eddie was a lifelong political junkie and could discuss the candidates for state, local and national politics back to his teen years.  He had a quick wit and would leave people in stitches with his jokes.  He enjoyed drawing and delighted his grandchildren by sending his art to them.  During his teen years he played bass, drums, and sang in a rock and roll band.  A lifelong UT football fan, he gave up watching the games to keep his blood pressure under control.

He also enjoyed bird watching, gardening and hiking.

Fond memories of fishing and hiking with Eddie and Eileen in my early days at UT back in 1976-77. Great sense of humor, loved the outdoors - a good friend to have. We didn’t catch a lot of fish but we had some good times. His political humor was the best and on point. Condolences to Eileen and family.

To the Queener Family, 
I am the Aunt of Dawn Queener who is married to Eddie Queener's son, Robert. Even though we never had an opportunity to meet Eddie we heard through Dawn and Robert what a wonderful and kind man he was. Both of us send our very sincere and deepest condolences to the entire Queener family on their loss. May our Hevenly Father above comfort each of you as you each grieve this great loss. 
With deep sympathy, Jane and Roger Simpson.
