Best known as “Ed,” “Eddie” was born on Dec. 11, 1942, in Los Angeles, Calif. He passed on to the next life on Monday, Sept. 19.
Eddie resided in California for the majority of his life. Out of high school, he joined the Army. After that, he spent time in Denver and Colorado Springs. Ed’s passion was riding his Harley and his motorcycle companions were his closest friends.
