We would love it if you would share your stories or memories about our dad.
I had the pleasure of meeting Eddie as a result of marrying into the family. Eddie and my wife, Carol, were first cousins. I was lucky enough to be on his email list, and that’s really how our relationship grew. I never dreamed I’d be emailing him nearly every day over many years. We always had a great time sending political articles to each other and talking politics, sports and all kinds of things. It was easy to develop a relationship with Eddie because our thoughts and feelings were so much the same on so many issues. I always had a lot of respect for Eddie because he fought for our country and was a successful, self-made man. But I also admired his obvious zest for life and how that love influenced others. He so obviously loved his girls, grandkids and friends. You could always feel his pride when he sent out pictures to people on his email list of friends and family. I will miss Eddie, especially his thoughts on politics, general humor, and jovial nature. Nobody was like Eddie Walner.
