    My uncle was one of the kindest, goodhearted men I’ve ever known. He was always there for his children, Devera and Littleton, and always there for the rest of our family. Whether it was a holiday, special occasion, or the loss of someone in our family…we always knew that Eddie would be there if he could. My love and prayers are with those who loved him most. Thank you Uncle Eddie, for being one of the good guys…actually one of the best! I know that all those in heaven are so glad to have you there. You are loved, and will be missed greatly.

    Kathleen & Family:
    We first met Eddie about 10 years ago when he joined our CMA chapter and we have been friends and riding together since.. We can truly say we have never known a more kind, loving, giving and gentle man in our lives… Eddie Sasser is what representing Jesus Christ is all about.. Not only that, but whenever you saw him, he always had a smile, a kind word and funny saying or joke of some description.. He loved riding his Victory and always wanted to ride the rear which could be a problem at night….. I don’t think his headlights had a dimmer switch, bless his heart… Eddie, we will miss you, but I know you are rejoycing in the presence of God & our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ on the streets of gold!

  9. Don & Claire Hodges says:

    Dear Kathleen, Dallas & Family,

    I cannot tell you how sorry we are about your loss and heaven gain. We love Bro. Eddie, he loved the Lord and you knew it by being with him. Claire and I will never forget the rides out west and our mountain rides. Brother Eddie has finally earned his “Gold Wings”. He will be greatly missed, but never will be forgotten. He will always live in our heart. Great Memories. Apostle Paul said” To live is Christ and to die is gain”

    Blessings,
    Don & Claire

    While your hearts are sad and arms appear empty, know Gods love is greater than anything. Mr. Eddie was a wonderful man, he would come talk with Brian while chopping wood. Always bearing a smile and catch up on families. His love for God shown bright. An amazing angel.

  11. Bobby & Patricia Tebeau says:

    Eddie also was special to us, always a smile, loved talking
    to him. We know he is signing in heaven ( He loved singing
    in the Choir at Church).
    He will be greatly missed by us and many others.

  12. L.E. & Donna Hewett says:

    Sasser family,
    Who said you can’t ‘Smile’ while riding a motorcycle?! Just look at any pic of Eddie on his bike! What fun & funny memories Eddie made for all of us. Kickstand up or down! Truly enjoyed the times spent with him.
    With Prayers,
    The Hewetts

    I worked with Eddie at Southeastern Auto Auction for the last year. He was a gentleman and a fine Christian. He was a delight to be around and I will miss him. My condolences to the family.

  14. Jim Williams says:

    So sorry for your loss. We will ride with Eddie again on streets of gold!

    John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”

  15. Anne & Greg Sweatt says:

    We enjoyed working at Southeastern Auto Auction with Eddie. He always had a smile and a kind word. He will be greatly missed. Loving thoughts to the family.

  16. Stephen Young says:

    I first met Eddie at Woodlawn UMC. He was immediately one of my favorite people to be around. He had an infectious smile and a gentle, humble spirit. He was the embodiment of a Christian man, and I appreciated not only the time we were together but the example he set. He was a joy to work with on church projects, and his kindness and compassion were always foremost in anything he did.

    I last saw Eddie at the Southeastern Auto Auction where he beamed, as usual, with that great smile and a kind “hello”. I grieve at his passing, but I look forward to seeing him again knowing that smile will be bigger than ever in that home he knew awaited him while he was with us.

    He has a wonderful family and leaves a legacy of love.

  17. Jessie Beard Taylor says:

    Eddie was a wonderful man. He will be missed by many. Praying for all his family and friends. Rest in Peace Eddie.
