Having known Eagle Eye since early childhood, during the "Glory Days" of Jackson Street, the Carver House, and the historic Westside, I am so proud to say that all of my memories of him are those of joy! He had a way of making you feel as special as it was to be in his presence. What a joy it'll be to watch and hear him on drums again in Gloryland! We love you and will miss you...until then.

There is always a need for drummers in Heaven. Eagle Eye will now be a drummer for a band of angels. Rest in peace.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Mr Shields at the Mosignor residence, where my mother also lives, I am Cuban as is my mother and we talked about Cuban food and Cuban music and the times he enjoyed both when he traveled there to play, I didn't know him for very long but I truly enjoyed my talks with him, May He Rest in Peace

Hey Eagle Eye! Nobody could swing like you man. I learned so much about playing listening to your drumming and your stories. Knowing you will always be among the joys of my life. You will be in my heart whenever I play Jazz Drums...Thank you!

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

Mr. Shields you will be truly missed here at Monsignor Shallow. Your singing always brought a smile to my face. You are truly someone special and I am so happy I got to know you. May you rest in peace.
