So many wonderful memories of such a humble man! Can’t begin to tell of all the things he did for the kids at the high school, the Mustang players and coaches … and especially the way he adopted me and my family into his own. Eddie’s gift was definitely HOSPITALITY! He gave so much of himself - and I know The Lord welcomed him home and said “Well done My good and faithful servant!”

Eddie spent many years with us at Marble Falls High! He was a dedicated Mustang and did his best to keep our school clean and beautiful! He was involved with the students and so supportive of them. One example I’ll share is him cooking breakfast tacos for my students to sell so they could raise money for their FHA trip to Washington DC! He loved to see the kids do great things and was always helpful to the teachers. He made our Mustang Corral a place to call home! A good man…. I am proud to have worked with him!❤️Rest In Peace, Ed…job well done! Kathy (ms Nelson) Nobles

Sharing your grief at the huge loss, but also the joy that came with knowing Eddie! What fond memories I have of him. Makes me smile! I just KNOW he is in a beautiful place, fully at peace, along with the others we have lost. One thing we never lose, though, is the love. So much LOVE! Grateful for that. May you experience “great fullness” of peace and joy as you carry that love and the memories with you.

My deepest sympathies,

Amy Giesecke
