Brother Eddie accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized in 1964 by the late Bishop Roman Ealy in Galvez, LA. He joined The Church of God in Galvez LA and later moved his membership to The Shining Star Church of God under the leadership of his wife, Pastor Marie Henry.

Brother Eddie met his wife in 1964 and was united in Holy Matrimony to the love of his life, Pastor Marie Henry, on August 2, 1964. They remained married for 59 ½ years until he transitioned home. To this union six children were born. Brother Eddie also assisted in rearing many family members throughout his life. He was dedicated to his family and worked hard to support, and provide for them. His character was an example that could be replicated for years to come. While he was a jack of all trades, he spent thirty plus years at D.S.I. Transport/Tri-Mac until he retired in 2005.
