Eddie Byrd Memorial Fund

Eddie Byrd, Jr. - a brother, a son, an uncle, a father and a friend whose life was tragically cut short by senseless gun violence on Saturday, February 24th. Since then we’ve received an outpouring of love via social media, calls and texts which can only be seen as a testament to Eddie’s fun-loving spirit, his wit, charm, charisma and humor that bonded him to so many while pursuing his passion, music.

In addition, many people have reached out to me and other members of my family inquiring as to how they can assist us during this difficult time. We’ve established this Go Fund Me account to go towards Eddie’s funeral expenses and the care of his three children, Heaven, Jahoddi and Gabriel, whom he loved dearly.

On behalf of my family, we sincerely appreciate your support.
