    I have know Eddie since I was 5 years old, when we moved to the neighborhood, Eddie was always eager to show a young boy how to ride a motorcycle especially wheelies, I remember him riding his dirt bike up and down the street and I remember hearing the roar of what ever hot rod he and Mr Newton were working on in the shop. Eddie was good neighbor he watched out for other neighbors property like it was his own, he was always quick to tell you if something was out of place or he had noticed someone snooping around and would be quick to tell someone they didn’t belong there and had better leave before he called the police. I always appreciated his honesty when talking with him. The neighborhood will not be the same without him. See you on the other side Eddie
