Ronald W. Eddings, the man with a golden heart has passed away on October 16, at the age of 85. Along the way he gave a piece of his heart to everyone he met. Our Dad had the privilege of passing at his home surrounded by his loving family.
He served in the US Navy from 1955-1959 serving on the Intrepid. Shortly after his discharge he met his wife Eileen , of which he would share 61 years of marriage with and raised four children in their home in Paterson, NJ. In 1976, Dad then moved his family to a safer, more beautiful place, Vernon, NJ.
