Eddie was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to hunt, fish, shrimp, and go boating on the lake and river. Every August 15th you would find him running his hunting dogs. When he wasn’t hunting he was on the water. His love of hunting and fishing came from his Papa Taylor who taught him everything he knew. He was a top welder in the state of South Carolina. His Uncle Edward got him a job in 1995 and guided him into the welder he was today. He loved his family and especially enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews. He was a practical joker and you could always count on him to make you laugh. He loved animals, especially his dog Storm. He loved his mother’s cooking and spending time with family. Anyone that met Eddie would consider him a friend because of his genuine personality and willingness to do anything for those he loved. Eddie will be extremely missed by all who knew him but his memory will live on with all the lives he touched in the short life he lived
