Herbert Lee Eddins, 87, of Rolesville died Wednesday morning April 15, 2015 at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Wake County to the late Lee Roy Eddins and Beulah Winston Eddins. Being quite the businessman, Herbert owned and operated many successful businesses along with working at Burlington Industries. He was proud to become a Licensed auctioneer which led to him opening Rolesville Flea Market where he made friends from all over the world. Herbert never met a stranger, loved to tell stories and was quite the “wheeler-dealer”. Rolesville will never be the same without him!
