Eddie was extremely passionate about blue grass music. He played his fiddle or guitar each week with his buddies in the garage.  He was a dedicated father and grandfather, attending all the grand and great grandchildren's ball games and activities.  Eddie will be remembered as an outgoing generous man, always sharing and giving of himself.  He had a tender heart, had a wealth of emotions, but also was a tad ornery.
