Eddie, as he was known by all, was a member of Crossroads Cowboy Church in West Monroe and was a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend. He was preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife Edie, his in-laws Epp and Elizabeth Norsworthy, his sweet sister Bonnie Williams, his brother Harold Dunn, and granddaughter Christy Dunn.
