Edwin “Eddie” Frances Arp, 64, of Rocky Point passed gently from his earthly life on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center surrounded with love by his family.

He served his country proudly in the US Army. Eddie was a devoted member of Broken Bread Fellowship Church, where he praised and served the Lord.
