Our heartfelt sympathy to all of the family.. We've known Eddie long enough to know the kind & good person he was to his friends, siblings and especially to his mother. He seemed to enjoy being at home until he married. When the family reunions were held, Eddie was there talking with everyone but in a quite and happy way, It was always good to be around him. Eddie will be missed by those closest to him but we know he is at peace.What a wonderful tribute he has left behind. Girls, you know the goodness and compassion God has for you. I know you will lean on Him when you need his comfort and love. Rita & daughter, God's blessings and comfort to you in the days ahead. Love always to each of you, Carl & Alma Jean.

Although I was not part of Eddy's every day life the countless hours we spent together as kids camping, hunting, fishing, watching the Marion Mets games always have and always will bring happiness to me whenever I think of them He will be catching those fish with the Lord now, how great is that? So sorry for your loss Jay Blevins
