Edward James Himel, Jr. of Pearl River, Louisiana died on August 28, 2021 at the age of 56.
Eddie was a giver. He gave to his family as the caring son of Sarah Barnes Himel and the late Edward James Himel, Sr., the loyal husband and best friend of 29 years to Christy Boudreaux Himel and the devoted father to his “pumpkin,” Camryn Ruth Himel.
He gave to his friends, always ready to lend a helping hand or a good joke.
He gave to the community as a member of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Department and the Gretna Police Department until his retirement, when he worked for Spectrum Small Business. Eddie was a long-time member of the Krewe of Endymion and the Fraternal Order of Police.
A long time resident of Marrero, Eddie lived a life of love and laughter, and the world is a little dimmer without his smile. Services will be held on Saturday, September 11, 2021 from 9:00 am - 11:00 am. He will be laid to rest in Garden of Memories cemetery at a private burial. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Greenbriar Community Care Center Residence Fund. Memories and condolences may be expressed at www.AudubonFuneralHome.com
