My husband and I just learned of Eddie's passing today when we called Cavendar to set up an appointment with him. We are shocked and saddened to hear the news of his death. Eddie was our service consultant for over 12 years, ever since we moved here and seeing him always made otherwise routine service appointments a delight. He was honest, joyful, kind, trustworthy and kind, and always good for a friendly hug. Please know that we will keep him and his family in our prayers.

My condolences to the Sanchez family. I have purchased several cars from Cavender Cadillac and my purchasing decisions were in no small part based on the excellent service given by Eddie, going above and beyond to help me on each visit. He was always upbeat and always thoughtful. He treated me as more than a customer - he treated me as his friend. With sympathy, Annalyn Smith

My condolences to the Sanchez family. I first met Eddie when I purchased my first Cadallic downtown and he was always the reason I stayed faithful to the Cadallic family. He made every visit the best experience. Eddie became more then a service rep he was our friend. The last time I saw him was in May and was telling me how proud he was to be a grandfather. Eddie you are definitely going to be missed but not forgotten.

Our condolences to the Sanchez family. We met Eddie about 10 years ago when we purchased a Cadillac at the downtown location. Through the years while taking the car for service he became a person we could call our friend. He was very proud of his two children and would mention them during our conversations. We were surprise to see the obituary because it wasn't that long ago we talked to him. We will miss seeing him at Cavender Cadillac and will pray for his wife and children.
