Uncle eddie was always funny.I loved all the fish tales growing up...some of my Fondest Memories growing up was with Uncle Eddie. And all of his stories that he would tell. He will be missed dearly

From the time when I was a child until I was a young man I so looked forward to going to west Monroe to see my uncle Eddie, aunt Ruby , Sonoma and Delores. He was so charismatic and giving to me. He always spoke to me as if I were an adult, including some occasional profanity but that is who he was and I truly love him. I have never seen anyone so committed to the story he was telling at that time. I can’t wait to see you again so I can sit and listen to some new ones 😇
