His best memories were meeting his high school sweetheart, Shirley, in English class at West High and marrying her in 1952. His career at Cincinnati Milacron as diagnostician allowed him to use his brilliant mind to problem solve for the company at home and abroad.

God bless Uncle Eddie and your entire family. I wish I could see you all and hug you in person. I can't count the times he cracked me up with his quick wit and one of a kind phrases. One time when I was in high school he saw me with long hair and a bandanna around my head. He looked at me the way that only he could do- you know that look- right? He said who are you supposed to be, Pocahontas? I loved him very much!

You are always in my prayers. God bless you all!!
