We honor and celebrate the inspiring life of MICHAEL WAYNE EDEN. Michael Eden passed away on January 29th at age 78 due to complications of Covid-19. He was born on November 21, 1943 in Detroit MI to parents Cecil & Rita Eden, now deceased.

Retiring after 30 years with General Motors in 1996, he did contract work for four years that took him to Mexico and Germany. After that he became a tax preparer for H&R Block.
