  1. Eddie was a great neighbor and friend. We would sit out on the driveway or under the tree or in his garage if the weather was not nice and visit. He loved to see my grandkids come over and show them his prize possessions that he kept. He loved to ride his small car and motorcycle and Oliver tractor and lawnmower. The kids would sit in his lap as he drove around the yards.

  2. Eddie always new how to fix it . I would talk to him about plant and garden issues and he would give his advice. He loved his sweets, he enjoyed baked goods.
    My favorite memory is when he took our grandkids on tractor rides.
    He was very handy, when our grandkids were younger he built a wooden support seat to put in our wagon so they could sit up and hang on.
    He struggled with his disease and illness with courage and perseverance (and I’m sure stubbornness).
    Camille and Lonnie thinking of you, so sorry for Eddie”s death, but he’s in God”s hands now.
    God Bless his memory.

    Love, Marilyn

  3. Camille, Lonnie and brothers and sisters, my heart is so saddened by the loss of my great friend, co-worker in Pisek, and all the other contacts we had. If there was some guidance or help needed, Eddie was there in a flash. And no one can ever forget his SMILE. So often there wasn’t a ‘thank you’ to him; he was uselfish and thought of others like they were meant to be his #1 priority. Yes, you were a ‘Jack of all trades, and a master of endless projects tasks, and knowledge.’ Our world received such a gifted person, and you will be missed tremendously, but those you had contact with will never forget you, even those little tykes who were transported to and from school. Heaven gained a true angel.

    I’ll miss you Eddie! God Bless You always, as well as your family. My deepest and most sincere sympthy to you all.

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss. I was sad to see this. Eddie was such a nice guy. I remember when he would drive us home from the Pisek school in his suburban. There was one spot where we asked him to go fast so we would fly up in the air when he hit the bump in the road. Good times. Rest in peace.

  5. Camille, Lonnie and family. I have no words to express my sympathy for your loss. Eddie was a wonderful man and always fun to be around. He always had a good story to share. He will be missed.

  6. I forgot to add that he loved my dog, Reubin. When we would visit, he would always have a milk bone for him. When Reuben got older he couldn’t chew the whole milk bone in one piece, so Eddie would take his plier and break the milk bone up into tiny pieces for Reuben. Eddie loved to be around him. After Eddie moved, there was a sadness in Reuben.

  7. Eddie left us with the best gifts ever–his many acts of kindness, generosity, & zest for life & living it to the fullest. The most precious of all are the decades of memories how he enriched my children’s lives whenever we visited, always making sure they had a great time, leaving with smiles on their faces. Our lives are better for him being part of them.

  8. Uncle Eddie, thank you for being such a fun Uncle and creating so many memories with me. I loved the car rides, bike rides, ice cream trips, and fun on the farm. You will be missed.

  9. To Eddie Greicar Family- Sorry for your loss. We just drove to PR yesterday, past your farm & talking about Eddie, where he was. We drove thru Pisek, the school, & brought back my many fond memories of my years there. Eddie was a big part of that. Such a kind, helpful wonderful man. Saw him every day those 4 yrs I taught there. Always enjoyed & appreciated his gentle demeanor, happy smile, & always a positive word. Wish I’d known he was in Fargo all this timeI Would have loved a last chat. Prayers to your family.
