After accumulating a grand total of 39 years of service at US Steel, Eddie took his retirement in the year 1992. He had been a member of Bluff Park United Methodist Church for a sizeable amount of time and often attended Sunday services there. Eddie valued the time he got to spend with his loved ones, both human and animal, as well as in the great outdoors.
Eddie and Peggy, who were coming close to the age where they could start enjoying their retirement, made the decision to acquire a farm in the Warm Springs region so that they could be closer to their extended family. Eddie was active in the community by volunteering at their local church. He also enjoyed spending time with his family and friends and travelling on a variety of vacations. In particular, Eddie was looking forward to fishing trips that would take him from the Little River all the way to Sopchoppy. Not too long ago, Eddie was able to reacquaint himself with his high school sweetheart, Judy Crowder Fryer, as well as her family.
Because of their kindness and generosity, he was able to access a previously dormant well of happiness. Eddie is survived by his children, Karon H. Crockett, Margaret H. Cook (Ted), and Eddie W. Hill (Elizabeth); his grandchildren Spencer J. Crockett, Ted P. Cook (Kaylyn), and Matthew H. Cook; and his great-grandchildren Wyatt, Beau, and Owen Crockett.
