What gem you are. The memories I have of you and Lala are awesome. You guys became my friends when those 2 lil girls become friends. I will always treasure the memories of you. You were one of a kind..Kenny Rogers. I only wish I would have stayed closer to the two. But as usual God makes a plan. I know you are with him now. I will pray for you and family.

Eddie was not just our friend, he was more like a father to Stephen & I. He treated us like one of his own and also loved spending time with our kids Preston & Cameron. He was the 1st person to welcome us to Dock 14 about 7 years ago. We made so many wonderful memories every weekend with him. Even after he moved away from the dock we still always made it a point to go visit with him at least once a week. He was so special to us all!! So missing him, he will always be in our hearts!! We love him, sending our prayers to the family.

My heart aches knowing he is gone! I was Mr. Beasons' nurse from his in - home care agency. I knew him for less than a year but he was able to put a place in my heart for him on the very first visit I had with him!
He told me all about his two beautiful girls and his precious grandchildren. Showed me all their pictures!! This sweet and very sick man demanded to cook lunch for his aide (who was there to take care of HIM) every Tuesday & Thursday she was there !!!! She told him several weeks ago it was her turn to cook their lunch and he actually let her bc he had loved teaching her his cooking skills so she knew exactly what he liked and HOW he likes it!!
Those 2 formed a special bond that I have never seen happen so quickly and strongly in my 25 years of nursing!
He loved his family and his aide, that I know!
Such a sweet and giving man! I know he will be missed by many!!
RIP Mr. Eddieđź’–!!

I am so saddened to hear of Eddie’s passing. He was quite a friend to me at Dock 14 for many years.
We talked and fished a lot together.
He will always be remembered by everyone who knew him from Dock 14 and Portman Marina ! Rest In Peace finally my friend!
