During his retirement years, you could find him walking downtown Fredonia and adjoining areas daily regardless of the weather. He took much pride in his lawn care and home gardening talent. Eddie enjoyed walking the Lake Erie beaches for glass, stones, rocks and wood pieces for his backyard, and liked watching old reruns of cowboy TV shows and action movies.
