He will be missed by his loving family; most beautiful wife, Lorraine "Pollock" Lyczak Eastman, chatterbox daughter, Christine Eastman, prodigal son, Michael Eastman and his wife Amanda, grandsons, "Mr. Personality" Derick, and WFO, Dustin Franus, big 01' baby great grandson, Jack Franus and great granddaughter, Princess Ella Clooney.

Doc worked 50 years as a chiropractor in Westlake, Louisiana. His accomplishments were vast and varied; graduated on the dean's list from LSU and Palmer College of Chiropractic, Cubmaster, Scoutmaster, and Scout Committee Chair, Silver Beaver, President of Rotary, Board of . Directors for Chiropractic, Director of Chiropractic Association,

International Chiropractic Association, President of Men's Fellowship of the Church of God, various committees of Westlake United Methodist, PPG CAPP, Rotarian, Mason, Shriner ... recently was recognized as the local hometown hero. And if that weren't enough, his adventures were just as impressive. He lived life, not as a cup half full, but more as a bucket flowing over. Just a few of those drops were fishing, skiing, boating, golf, skydiving, becoming a pilot, canoeing down a spillway, riding the Colorado rapids, survival camping in the Canadian wilderness, traveling every continent on the planet, AND,AND, AND he even kissed a Blarney Stone. Basically you could say he was a member of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen!

In lieu of flowers, the family request donations made in his name to either the BSA or Palmer College of Chiropractic.

Services will be 1:00pm at Hixson Funeral Home of Westlake. Visitation will be from 12noon until time of service. A Celebration of Life will immediately follow at the United Methodist Church of Westlake. Words of comfort may be shared with the family at www.hixsonfuneralhomes.com
