Eddie was a graduate of Fayette County High School, Embry-Riddle University, in aviation computer technology, and worked for Delta in this capacity, was an Eagle Scout, Volunteer Fireman, Police Dispatcher, and loved helping others.
A favorite writing he loved and related to was: “I am who I am. I am not who the world labels me as I am. I am who God says I am. I am in the palm of his hand, I am strong, I am healthy in heart and spirit and I have been redeemed. I am a child of God, and no one can take that from me.”
