On a Beautiful day in late spring, June 18, 1963 in Fort Benning, Georgia a son was born to Erwin and Almetta Buffington- Pease. He was given the name Edwin and after a few years, he was called “Eddie” by his family and friends.
Eddie’s education began at Dubois Elementary in Summit, Oklahoma, A.R. Middle School and fin ally graduating from Muskogee High School. Eddie then served in the U.S. Army National Guard for two years.
His passion was for his family and cooking. He loved to Bar-B-Que Eddie was a kind, friendly and trustworthy person. He loved children he would take them to the park so they could play, one of his younger cousins made a comment that “Uncle” Eddie protected all the younger children (cousins, nieces and nephews).
