He married Barbara Pirtle Nov. 26, 1966.

During his early years Eddie operated his own salon and later explored other career paths such as managing local bakeries, cake decorating and continuing his education. While obtaining his degree from Southeast State University to become an educator, he was recognized with Buffi as being the first father daughter team to graduate together. He retired from teaching after 14 years, making many great memories along the way.
In retirement, Eddie enjoyed gardening, baking, crafts, watching wildlife and car rides with his wife. Most important to him was quality time spent with his family and grandchildren. Eddie was a member of Crossroads First Church of God.
