Eddie was an active member of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Iraan. He was also an avid Dallas Cowboys fan and was devoted to providing for his family, spending the majority of his adult life working long hours in the oilfield, sometimes getting home at 2 A.M. and waking back up just two hours later at 4 A.M. in order to give his family the best life that he possibly could, and never once complained about it. Eddie was happiest when he got to enjoy quality time with his family, especially his grandchildren, Christian and Avery. Eddie touched the lives of many and will be missed greatly by his many friends and family, but his memory will live on in our hearts forever.
