Eddie Lawrence Overstreet, 57, of Roanoke, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, in Salem, Virginia.

Eddie was a hard-working man, his work ethic as well as his personality were strong and pure. He was a dedicated employee of Specialized Saw & Mower/King’s Hauling & Excavating Inc. for thirty plus years. Over the course of time he developed a strong bond with not only his coworkers but also with the customers and the community. He never missed a day of work; his job was everything to him. Things will not be the same at the shop without Eddie. He will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

A public visitation will be held on Thursday, August 27, 2020, from 6 to 8:00 p.m. at John M. Oakey & Son Funeral Home in Salem. He will be laid to rest privately as per his wishes.

Eddie was the kind of employee that every employer would want. Eddie worked tirelessly on any task he was given. Eddie developed personal relationships with each customer that he delivered to and he was loved by all of them. Above all, Eddie was the most unselfish man I have ever know, he would give you the clothes off of his back if you needed it. I don't believe there is anything Eddie wouldn't do for you if asked, he was kind, soft spoken and generous with his heart. He is missed so much by all of us. I know he is in heaven now, smiling down on all of us. Thank you so much for having the distinct pleasure of knowing you all these years.

Eddie had the biggest heart of any man I know. He would do anything for you no questions asked. He will always have a very special place in my heart. He can rest easy now.
