Eddie Pickens "Buddy" of Melvindale, passed away on April 28, 2021 at the age of 66. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert and Elizabeth Pickens; and by his wife, Bridget Pickens. He is survived by his children, Jennifer Pickens Locklear and Sabrina Pickens; by his grandchildren Meghan, Isabella, Jenna, Caroline, Anakin, Ainsley and Ryder; by is brother Kenneth (Juanita) Pickens; by his sister Carol (Tammy) Pickens; and by the mother of his children, Wanda Dial.
Buddy was a man of true integrity and strength. He was quiet, humble and kind. His circle was small, but tightly-knit. He retired from General Motors after more than 30 years, he had a passion for bass fishing and music, especially classic rock. His little family loved him immeasurably and we will miss him with a deep ache-until we meet again. The family would like to offer a special thanks to the caring nurses and clinical staff at Lincoln Park Kidney Center.
