Eddie was an avid collector and history buff. He loved trains and antique cars, but his greatest joy came from spending time with his four grandchildren. Over the years he attended every school and sporting event for his children and grandchildren with his camera in hand. He was able to see much of the world cruising with his wife, Mira, by his side. They traveled all over Europe, the South Pacific, Alaska, and the Caribbean and were always ready for another adventure.
