Born July 20, 1945, in Elliott County, he was the son of the late Jesse Lee DeHart and Nellie Mae Trent DeHart. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by four brothers, Harlan DeHart, William Paul DeHart, Glennis Ray DeHart, and Delmas Wayne DeHart, and one sister, Edna Stevens.
Eddie is survived by his wife, Jamie Bowman DeHart, whom he married April 29, 1995; three sons, Craig DeHart, Jonathan Bowling (Kayla), and Cory DeHart (Chelsea), all of Morehead; and four grandchildren, Rylee Bowling, Jayla Bowling, Holly DeHart, and Lilly DeHart.
