I was always greeted with a big smile and was made to feel as part of his family. Eddie always had encouraging words and was as honest and trustworthy as they came. I know Jesus smiled many times during Eddies life as he would give you the shirt off his back. Always ready to lend a hand and did MANY times. Can't really give enough praise to a life well lived. Sing me a song Eddie cause I know you are singing now.

I am sad to hear of Eddie's death. I enjoyed EMT class with him and always enjoyed being around him. He was a good man and I am honored to have known him. He was always very proud of you and always was eager to talk about his fam! I hope you will be able to feel God's strength and His peace during these hard days. - Clint Gorman

Dear Drucella & family,
We were shocked to read about Eddie 's passing in the paper this morning. Had he been sick or was this unexpected? Know you are in our thoughts & prayers. Wish we could be there for you but with all our health problems & this COVID-19 , just know we will be thinking of you. Express our sympathy to Bennie, Margaret & the boys.
