Mr. Eddie Bernard Newby was born in Chatham County to Robert and Mary Newby on October 4, 1960. He entered his eternal rest on January 9, 2023.
At an early age, Eddie joined First Missionary Baptist Church where he served as an usher and sang in the choir.
Eddie attended Jordan Matthews High School in Siler City, NC. He worked at various companies throughout his career. Most notably, his skills as master plumber were used to complete renovations at the UNC Chapel Hill Hospital and the campus of UNC Greensboro. Eddie took pride in the knowledge, skills, and hands on experience he acquired from his “Grandfather” Jessie Glover that enabled him to earn certification as Master Plumber. He loved his family and was always looking forward to the next gathering. He enjoyed cooking, eating good food, and watching his Dallas Cowboys or Carolina Tar Heels bring home a win.
Eddie was preceded in death by his mother and father Robert, and Mary Newby his brother, Roderick McSwain.
