Obituary – Feken, Edward Charles

Edward Charles "Eddie" Feken

Class of 1992

The 1991-92 Maroon Spotlight was dedicated to Eddie’s loving memory with the following poem.

Love Lives On

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on,
and cherished memories never fade
because a loved one’s gone…

Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is memory
they’ll live on in the heart.
