I had no clue as to Eddies passing. We were neighbors and he was my Best Friend. Loved him dearly and he was always a jokester and always took care of me when we were riding Bus #13 and in school. I am so very sorry to learn of this scrolling thru obits. He will and is missed by many. Love You Eddie. See you on the other side my dear friend

Went to Nebo School with Eddie. I remember him well and he always astonished me with his ability to draw. So sad to hear of his passing.

Janice and Family, I am so sorry for the loss of William. We shared a special bond at work and could always find fun in some otherwise tense times. I was happy to share his friendship for many years and think of him often. I will not be able to make the celebration of life but know I will be there in spirit. Hugs and prayers during this time. Danny
