In 1966, Eddie married Rita Lyons. Eddie graduated from the University of Texas Pharmacy School in 1967. After graduation, Eddie and Rita returned to Abilene to join his family in the pharmacy business. Eddie owned and operated Eddie Krieger Pharmacy in River Oaks Village for over 30 years.

Eddie is remembered as a kind, calm, and artistic son, brother, husband, Dad and friend. His witty sense of humor was only to be overshadowed by his helping and giving nature. Eddie had many hobbies. He was well known for his passion as an excellent potter, his proficiency as a fly fisherman, and his talent as a photographer. Eddie was an avid reader and enjoyed collecting first edition books. He loved his family and friends and had an incredible love for his dog, Ellie.

Eddie made a great impact on the lives of his friends and family. He led by example, committed himself to the service of others, and garnered the trust of local citizens for years through his service as a Pharmacist.
