He had a shot at a professional baseball career, but duty called. He entered the military draft, proudly serving in the Pacific during World War II. After the war, he took advantage of the GI Bill, graduating from St. Louis University and ultimately landing in Dayton in 1964 with Frigidaire, where he spent his entire 37-year professional career. During his long life, Eddie loved to play golf and take part in VFW activities. He also spent 20 years as a hospice volunteer. Eddie’s family sends a warm thank you to Hospice of Dayton, a true godsend.
