Community Mourns Passing Of Alderson Citizen, Volunteer

Alderson has lost a revered community member in Edward Glen “Eddie” Range.

Range passed away on Friday, January 28, “with his family at his side,” his obituary notes.

“Eddie was a fixture of the Alderson community,” reads his obituary. “He loved devoting his time to the Alderson Volunteer Fire Department, where he was deeply respected. Eddie always had a smile on his face, watching and speaking to everyone as they passed the intersection of the Alderson Memorial Bridge. He enjoyed playing his PlayStation and watching television, especially The Dukes of Hazzard. Eddie was a devout member of the River of Life Church of God, where he enjoyed singing and fellowship.”

Mayor Travis Copenhaver, on the Town of Alderson Facebook page, celebrated Range’s involvement with Alderson as a volunteer and community member.

“Yesterday evening, an Alderson icon left this world and entered the kingdom of Heaven,” reads the post. “Walking upright and without deficits of stroke or Cerebral Palsy. Many of you knew our hero from his perch at the intersection of Riverview Drive and Monroe Street North. There for sure has been a void there since his stroke a couple of years ago. From his love of Little League to his most passionate love, [the Alderson Volunteer Fire Department], Ed was maroon and gray through and through.”

Range will be “deeply” missed by his family, and those he helped in the community.

“As many of you already know, yesterday evening we lost one of our own,” reads a post from the Volunteer Fire Department. “After a long fought illness our brother Eddie Range passed away. … Please keep Eddie’s family in your thoughts and prayers.”

“Rest In Peace, a True and Devout ‘Aldersonian,’” Copenhaver’s post reads. “May God grant the entire family peace and comfort during their great time of need.”
