Eddie was the best auto mechanic and could fix anything. He did it with such joy and passion. He worked alongside his father at the family business, Eddie's Wheel Alignment & Brakes, named after father and son. Eddie's dream was to take over the shop one day. When he was not working on cars he loved to fish and listen to rap music, even rapping to music himself. He loved artists' Tupac, Biggie Smalls and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. He also enjoyed football and was a Dallas Cowboys fan. Eddie did not have a selfish bone in his body and would do anything for anyone. Eddie was the best friend anyone could have. His heart was pure and his motives in life were always positive. He was an amazing person, so full of life, energy, and laughter and was a joy to be around. A true testament to the size of his big heart, Eddie loved animals and always brought home strays to save. At 29 years of age Eddie was still a kid at heart but unfortunately had no children of his own. He was the best uncle. He loved his nieces and nephew like his own and was loved just as much in return. Please remember him as the larger than life, invincible person who you could always call on for help or to make you laugh. He is loved and greatly missed.
