Eddie was preceded in death by his wife of 40 years, Mrs. Jewel Herbert.

Eddie (our good-looking Papa) was a very loved family patriarch, friend and husband. He enjoyed study and lively debate of the scriptures and sharing his relationship with Jesus. His greatest pride and joy were his family who he devoted a life to supporting in various loving ways. Although he will be missed more than words can convey, we have a lifetime of precious memories to help us endure.
