September 28, 1941 - January 27, 2023 

Eddie J. Ward passed away Friday, January 27, 2023, in San Antonio, Texas. He was born September 28, 1941, in Olustee, Oklahoma to his parents Blon Thompson and James Roland Ward. He was an honor graduate of Texas A&M University and served his country as an officer and command pilot in the USAF.
