He then attended St. Phillips College for welding. In the 1960’s, he served as an officer with the New Braunfels Police Department. In 1971, Eddy attended the Texas A&M Extension School to further his educational and teaching career. As a welding instructor, he worked at Gary Job Corps and then in the oil fields of Saudi Arabia. Eddy then went on to teach welding and carpentry trades for Roosevelt High School in San Antonio, Texas where he retired in 1997.
Eddy loved spoiling and spending time with his beloved border collie, Daisy, tinkering and building things in his shop, finding “treasures” at garage sales, and spending time with those he loved most. He was a treasured friend and beloved husband, father, and Paw. His memory will always be in our hearts. Per Eddy’s request, there will be no formal service, but a celebration of life for family and friends at a later time. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the charity of your choice.
