Edwin P. McPherson

Edwin “Eddie” P. McPherson, 64, of Port Arthur passed away Saturday, July 17, 2021.

Eddie was born August 15, 1956, in Anahuac, Texas to Perry McPherson and Ann McPherson.

From the time Eddie was six weeks old until he turned three years old, he lived in Hawaii with his family.

He loved fishing, playing video games, swimming, and his animals.

He enjoyed spending weekends at the shack in Louisiana and taking summer trips to Colorado.

He never turned down a piece of candy or a hamburger from Dairy Queen, and was frighteningly good at trivia.

Eddie was a good man. He believed that if you didn’t have anything nice to say, you shouldn’t say anything at all.

He was a loving and dedicated husband, father, and grandfather.

Eddie was a genuine and sweet soul that will be dearly missed.

Those left behind to cherish Eddie’s memory are his wife of 18 years, Karen McPherson; his mother, Ann McPherson; his children, Jammie Canfield, Kristal Williams and her husband Charles, Michelle Collum, and Nathaniel Frederick and his wife Chandice; his grandchildren, Brandon, Sara, Ethan, Eli, Blake, Jaxon, and Hayden; his sister, Lynn Bucknall and her husband Chris; and his nephews and niece, Brian Bucknall, Elliot Bucknall, Will Bucknall and Holly Bucknall. Edwin is preceded in death by his father, Perry McPherson; and his grandson, Andrew Sharpton.

A gathering of family and friends was held Monday, July 19, 2021, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Melancon’s Funeral Home.

A graveside service took place at Memory Gardens Cemetery in Nederland, Texas on Tuesday, July 20, 2021 at 10:00 a.m.

Eddie would have loved if you would donate to pupsinperil.org in his memory.
