ADD A MEMORY
Robert and Shonnie Bechtel

October 7, 2018

Our condolences to the family. We miss the good ole days when we were fishing and partying together. My best memory I have and will never forget was when Eddie and I was fighting in my mom's front yard rolling around on the ground and Shonnie's stepfather came from the backyard to see what was going on we both stopped fighting and jumped up and told him to go back to his house and as soon as he left we went right back to fighting. Even though we were in the middle of a fight we still stuck together. To me that is true brotherhood. Miss you and RIP
