Obituary for Eddie Rogers Ervin Sr.

The Early Years
Eddie was born in Tyler, Texas a small East Texas town about 80 miles East of Dallas in a small community called Spring Creek to the Late Eddie Jerry Ervin and Laura Louise Erwin (Beal).
In 1971 Eddie was introduced to a local community girl by the name of Marian L. Richardson by her late cousin, Michael Richardson. They fell in love and were married for twenty-three years. To this union three boys were born.
Eddie had great love for his family that he grew up. He often had spoken affectionately of his mother Laura Louise and his father Eddie Jerry through the years. He especially loved his siblings, the late Sherrell Faye Beal Brooks, the late Homer Charles Ervin aka Mole, and his sister Blanche.
He also loved his many cousins, Shelia, Bug, Emmanuel, the Late Bynah Roselle, Florastine, Shirley, Rose, Evelyn Jean and many more.
Unbeknownst to Eddie, a lifepath had been laid out for him to travel away from Sugar Hill. This path was designed by the Lord.

This is where Eddie was handpicked by a Scientist to work on the very first Space Shuttle, the Discovery as a Technician.
When Eddie signed up for the Navy and took the ASVAST test, he did extremely well on it as well. Eddie enjoyed everything about being in the Navy except the water.
In the later years of Eddie’s career, he worked in manufacturing, many thanks to the late Hardin Taylor the family friend who helped him get on at Kelly Springfield Tire Plant.
When his youngest child entered grade school Eddie along with his then wife Marian felt a calling to established a Cub Scout Group in the Spring Creek Community and obtained the help of the Spring Creek Baptist Church and Tyler Scout District Office to accomplished this achievement, he was able to establish the Cub Scout Pack Number 516 and became the Cub Master.
