Ed was born February 20, 1942, to Ernest and Mildred (Imler) Eberhardt at Berrien General Hospital. While attending Lakeshore High School, Ed was actively involved in their local 4H. It was there where he met Barbara “Barb” Diederich. The two had a blossoming friendship which led to him asking her to prom and later to be his wife. On July 30, 1966, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, with several hundred people attending, Ed and Barb were wed.

Ed worked at several Die Cast Companies (Pemco, Paramount and Premier Die Casting Companies) during his career as a Die Cast Operator. He enjoyed traveling when he was younger and going to Great Britain to see his son in the Air Force. Ed loved growing up on a farm, and took great pride in tending to his yard using those same skills. When he wasn’t working on his yard, he would join his old work buddies for breakfast during his retirement. One of his well-known qualities was how outgoing he was. During fair season, he was able to strike up a conversation with anyone while always having a smile on his face. Ed was a devoted, dedicated husband and father, and will be missed by his whole family and everyone that knew him.

Ed is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Barbara Eberhardt; sons, Edward (Christina Slabaugh) Eberhardt Jr., and Daniel Eberhardt; grandson, Damon Eberhardt; and sister-in-law, Cindy Diederich. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ernest & Mildred.
