Eddie attended Miller School in Batesville until transferring in his junior year to Albemarle High School. He had a varied working career which included working at Morton's Frozen Foods in Crozet, a welder at Process Engineering and Fabrications in Nelson County, and a school bus driver for Albemarle County. His last job before retiring was as a security officer at Security Associates of Waynesboro.

He leaves to cherish his memory three children, Stacey Showalter of Salem, Virginia, Charles "Chuck" Fix and his wife, Amy, of Ruckersville, Virginia, and Michelle Frazier and her husband, Anthony, of Ruckersville, Virginia. He was a beloved "Pa Pa" and "Granddaddy" to eight grandchildren, Jonathan and Samantha Deaton of Salem, Virginia, Camry Yates of Stanardsville, Virginia, Cayden, Ryan, and Ryleigh Fix of Ruckersville, Virginia, and Ryan and Kierstyn "Kitty" Frazier of Ruckersville, Virginia.
