Eddie enjoyed being with family and friends and always cooking something in the kitchen. He enjoyed riding his motorcycle, feeding the horses, hanging at the gazebo, feeding the fish and playing with Paisley. He especially enjoyed indulging and spoiling his wife. He never met a stranger. He loved telling jokes and pulling pranks. He was very quick-witted and never had a bad word to say about anyone. He will be missed by many friends, family and especially his loving wife.
