Obituary for Eddie Werz

The family of Edward Werz “Eddie”, 64, of Creedmoor, North Carolina announce his passing on July 15, 2020 after a brief battle with cancer.
Eddie will be remembered by his life partner of 30 years, Melissa Rhyne, as well as numerous other family members and friends. Eddie was predeceased in death by his father and mother Thomas B. Werz and Ann Dillon Werz and sister Ann Marie Horner. He is survived by his sister Ginger Werz-Petricka and husband Ron Petricka, brother Thomas B. Werz, Jr. and wife Linda Jordan Werz, niece Cari Werz Maconochie and nephew Thomas B. Werz, III, niece Jane Horner Edwards and daughter Julianne as well as his unofficial stepdaughter Stacy Rhyne-Smith and husband Brooks Smith and their children Evelyn, Aidan, Ronan and Rebekah.
Eddie attended Virginia Commonwealth University and later the Berklee College of Music. He was a professional musician touring for many years before relocating to North Carolina where he was employed by the Xerox Corporation as a Field Service Technician for the past 35 years.
Eddie loved music, bass fishing, and his boat, but most importantly playing bass guitar for many local bands in the Raleigh-Durham area over the past 35 years most recently with the Bull City Blues Band. Eddie never met a stranger and was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile and was always ready with a joke or two to tell to anyone he met. He will be truly missed by his family, his many friends and to all who knew him.
A Celebration of Eddie’s Life will be held at a later time.

Eddie always walked into our building as if he was a member of our work family, not as a vendor or technician. He always had a smile on his face, and always had a new joke or funny story to help us through the day. He brightened our business up everytime he was here, and he will be surely missed. All of us at CES Mail will always remember you Eddie. Rest in peace...

I worked with Eddie since 1995 when I moved here. Most of those 25 years we were members of the same team at Xerox. I retired in 2016 but called Eddie when I heard of his cancer. As sick as he was he hadn't changed a bit. Always having a funny story . DALE Earnhart Jr. Lost his number 1 fan.
