There are some people in our lives who cannot be replaced and Eddie is one of those people. I can still see two shirtless young guys running the 12 mile loop around Lake Hefner in OKC. I still run there and I know Eddie still runs with me. All of the memories of all the races we each won and lost against the best there was will always be with me. RIP old friend. charley seay, February 1, 2016 On behalf of Dr. Larry Chapman and our entire staff we would like to express our condolences to the family and friends of Eddie. We adored Eddie and I was personally looking forward to him flying me and my boys for our first jump. The day we do jump, I'll be talking to ya Eddie and I'll know you'll be watching and smiling that great smile of yours from your great big blue sky. Betty Swanson, April 16, 2015 I was a High School friend of Eddie. He always showed kindness toward a socially awkward tall lanky teenager. I pray that he is at peace with the Father.
