Eddie loved his family and loved the Lord. He was a member of West Hartsville Baptist Church for 56 years where he served as a deacon, Sunday School superintendent and on various committees. He spent years working with World-Changers, an organization that helps the elderly and indigent in the southeast region of the US. Eddie was also known around Hartsville for helping those in need. He loved people especially children. Eddie served his community by participating on the Hartsville Planning Commission and organizing the annual Christmas parade and Christmas display. For many years he was a member of the Lions’ Club where he really enjoyed participating in the annual variety show. He had quite a “knack” for woodworking and enjoyed the Woodworkers’ Club as well. Eddie was such a diverse man that he was even a bee-keeper for short time. He enjoyed traveling and his naval ship reunions in his latter years. Once he had retired, Eddie loved working out in the yard with his annuals and tomato plants.
