Eddie attended DeVry Technical Institute Resident School in Chicago, Illinois and received a diploma on January 11, 1963 for Electronic Controls for Automation. He married Evonne Kaye Sedgwick on June 8, 1963. Eddie completed his required training in the United States Army Reserve in the late 60’s which included Advanced Individual Military Police Training.

Eddie had a passion for the outdoors and was an avid bird watcher. One of his favorite places to visit was the Great Smoky Mountains National Park where he spent many vacations hiking with his wife and son. Eddie could fix anything and could often be found in his workshop. He also enjoyed collecting coins.
However, the most important thing to Eddie was his family. He loved his wife, son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren so much. His smile, quick wit, wisdom, and work ethic will be missed by all who knew him.
