To Brenda, family and friends of this amazing man we have lost. My deepest and heartfelt sympathy,prayers and thoughts to each and everyone of you. i have always said "Eddie is a special kind of man" , one of a kind . A couple things i will always remember about Eddie is him saying "Life is good girl ! " when i would ask how he had been or how is doing. Also i will remember what true and dedicated love he had and shown for his family. i will forever cherish my memories of the many good times spent with Eddie and Brenda weather it be through our vacations / travels , going to dances watching Eddie kick up those cowboy boots or just hanging out. Rest in peace my friend

I worked with Eddie for several years as members of the Map Committee. It was a real pleasure (and learning experience) for me to listen to Eddie and Carol Weiger talk about farms, farmers, and the dairy industry. Eddie also contributed a lot of his personal time taking me to visit old dairy farm sites so I could photograph them for the MOOseum. Each trip was a real pleasure for me as Eddie was an interesting and friendly man to be around. I will always remember "Eddie's cows" (and bull) that have added so much to the MOOseum. I will miss him.
