I have many fond memories of our younger years and the many times together when my boys were younger. I am happy knowing you are in heaven with dad and enjoying each other again. I am wearing and cherishing my #1 sister charm you gave me years ago. Love and miss you always!

I remember Ed for his sense of humor and joke telling. Many years ago the family get togethers were usually at Mac and Maudine's house. It didn't take long for Ed to start teasing me with the hispanic jokes. I didn't always get the joke because I read too much into it, that I became the joke! Ed had so much more fun teasing me and would be non-stop enjoying every minute.
Carol, Maudine, Kenny, Sheryl and family...losing a loved one is very difficult and the grieving process is hard and can be overwhelming. You will hear Ed's voice when you're alone and see him in your dreams. Let the memories you shared with Ed bring comfort and peace. Fondly, Dee Guerrero

What a loss of the smartest crusher guru. My sincere condolences and love to the family. Many times he helped me over the phone over the last 30 years. He was a great person. Godspeed Eddie.

For me, this day starts out with much sadness, as I found out this morning that Eddie Fellars has died. Eddie was such a great friend to me from the moment we (our family) first moved to Glendale (in 1968) until we graduated. I haven't seen or heard from him since Graduation Night 1973.
He was a truly great baseball player, especially at shortstop. He was, however, no kind of pitcher – as one day at Glendale High School Varsity Baseball practice in the spring of 1973, he volunteered to pitch during batting practice. When it was my time to bat, he started practicing his curve balls . . . and I had been hit by so many pitches that curve balls spooked me. So, more often than not, I would see the ball coming right at me and bail out – just to see the ball curve into the strike zone. Well, I was determined to hang in there and hit a curve ball. And he pitched one. And I saw it heading straight for my head. And I hung in there. And it hit me in the face and knocked me down. Everybody came running to me to see if I was OK and I tried to talk, but my top and bottom teeth didn’t align anymore. The pitch had broken my jaw. Eddie was just mortified and was apologizing over and over again. That was the end of the baseball season for me.
But, we shared classes for many years and ate lunch together for a long time as well. I have many good memories of Eddie and always will. This is truly a sad loss.
