First I would like to send my Love and condolences to the Ryan family. I am so very sorry for this great loss. Eddie has been a friend since we were kids on 7th Avenue, always with a kind and generous heart. When we got older and I had a family, Eddie always took care of our cars and made sure my girls cars were safe. My kids and I always knew that we could go to him and he would take care of everything. Especially if my kids were in trouble and I was unavailable and at work. I can't thank him enough for all he has done for us by always trying to help. Eddie, I know that you will be watching over your family, and also I know that everything you enjoyed here you will be able to enjoy there. We will all miss you.

Our deepest condolences to you all. Eddie was a fabulous man. Here is a picture from when we drove to Buffalo for a car craft show and we broke down. He always had our back. Hugs and prayers Steve and Katrina Marshall.

I met Eddie in Grady High School and we have been friends ever since. Over the last 45 years he has been a staple in not only my life but my family's also. I could always stop by the shop and have a good laugh with Eddie, Tommy and Roy. He is a great friend and I will miss him dearly. Until we meet again rest in peace my friend.
