How saddened we were to hear of the passing of our brother in Christ. We so thankful we knew Eddie through fellowship at Croatan Presbyterian Church. He was a very special man that truly loved the Lord and his family. Due to illness in recent times we have sure missed him and Dot. Life has a tole on our bodies but with God's help we continue the fight. That fight is over for him now and he is without pain in the arms of his heavenly Father. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Dot and the family. Know you are not alone for the Lord is there with you each. God Bless you each in the days ahead.

My brother-in-law Eddie was an awesome person. 😘 He was also an amazing, loving teddy bear, and I will miss him dearly. 😘 Furthermore, Eddie was a great cook. When he and Dorothy would get in the kitchen to make a meal, they made magic happen! 😘

I will miss our long talks and our time together. 😘 Lastly, our one and only Fourth of July together talking about the good old days and watching the fireworks. 😘 Thank you Eddie for being that amazing person in my like, making me laugh and smile. 😘

Love you always, Tracy 😘

So sorry to hear about Eddie. What a great loss! Eddie was one of the best most loyal friends one could have. I loved his sense of humor, his spirit and how loving and committed he was to his family and to his job. He has been the same since I met him back in the 1980”s. RIP and May Heaven be your eternal home. You will be missed my friend!! May God bless and comfort you all!
