So sorry to hear this news about Eddie. I had not seen Eddie since high school days, until our 50th NBHS Reunion. As it turned out, he was staying at the same motel as I was, and when I recognized him on Sunday morning, I invited him to join Shirley and I at our table for breakfast, which he did, and we got caught up a bit. He had some obvious health problems, but was looking forward to vacationing at Atlantic Beach, I think, with a few high school friends for a few days before returning to Texas. It was obvious from his obit that Eddie led a life helping others and was a very caring person. Thoughts and prayers to his family. My he rest in peace.

I remember growing up that Eddie was a kind person which came naturally to him. It was just something you sensed about him.  This was again born out when he attended the 50th Reunion. He seemed genuinely interested in when we toured Broughton  on Saturday. I remember classmates having a chair ready for him to sit in as the group stopped to hear the Assistant Principal talk about the courtyard renovation or the biology class preserved just down from the auditorium. 

Special thanks to Barbara and Mike Perkins who drove him back and forth to the various venues. Also to George Hearn who toured Eddie by his father’s photography studio in downtown Raleigh and his neighborhood house on Merrimon Avenue. 

Thank you Eddie for your contributions to mankind and to our Class.

Eddie was a kind and gentle soul. It was evident to those of us who knew him all those years ago. His obituary is a testament to the boy we knew and the man he became.

I loved the times and opportunities at Broughton. I knew Eddie only in passing, but it is sad to lose any of our alumni. The pictures of him are of a handsome young man and a handsome gentleman.
