Eddie and his wife Becky had a love for kids and were foster parents to many children later in life. He was also known for his abundant kindness and truly had a servant’s heart who would do anything for anyone and would give you the shirt off his back no matter his own situation.

Sterling, KY; 8 grandchildren, Austin Wolfe, Tori Beth Wolfe, Logan Schwinn, Matthew Schwinn, Nathan Schwinn, Hannah Schwinn, Reed Schwinn, and Sophie Schwinn.

Along with his parents, Eddie is preceded in death by two sisters, Carol Baldwin and Bonnie Schwinn; and one brother, Joe Schwinn.
