He is remembered as a loving father, selfless man, an expert story teller, amateur comedian, walking encyclopedia and living radio. He was a man who knew no strangers, only new friends. He had no ill words for anyone he knew. He loved unconditionally always and would go to great lengths to make someone’s day or make them smile, even if all that would take is a stupid joke or a little ditty. He was an amazing man whose greatest joy was taking care of the people around him and making everyone feel welcome, cared-for and loved. Eddie was the kind of man who would give you the shirt off his back if you asked. He was and is greatly loved by everyone who met him.
