Eddie made memories with numerous special friends at his camp on East Grand Lake and enjoyed spending time at his garage with neighbors, friends, and family. Eddie always lent a helping hand to anyone in need. His home and garage were a place to gather over the years and everyone was welcomed and greeted with a smile. He always had gumballs and candy for all of the kids. Eddie will be remembered for his witty conversations, Friday night pool tournaments, Johnny Cash music, and Jimmies burgers. He was a great friend to many and will be missed dearly by his community and Charles Dr.
