Eddie spent the better part of his adult life working in the construction industry, perfecting his trade as a cement finisher. He was lucky to spend most of his career working along side friends turned family. When he wasn't working, Eddie's expansive knowledge carried over and he was a true 'jack of all trades' and was the go to guy for anything you needed.
During his downtime, Eddie loved to cook and was a true master in the kitchen and on the grill. He also loved spending warm weekend mornings browsing at the local flea market or in his garage tinkering with his project of the day. He never wasted time and spent each moment on this earth with purpose and passion.
Eddie was a wise and kind soul with a light inside him that shined intensely. Those who were closest with him will carry his legacy on in everything he taught and the knowledge he shared. Eddie will be missed beyond measure but would want to be remembered for the time spent with him and not the time lost.
Celebration of life planned for March 20 at the Wyandotte Boat Club.
