Obituary

Eddie Bias was born in Napoleonville, LA on April 20, 1916 to the union of the late Willie and Lillian Bias. In 1947 he shared vows with the late Rebecca Colbert and enjoyed 58 years of marital bliss. God called him home on Saturday, June 27, 2020. Mr. Bias was 104 years old. Having strong faith and a sincere belief in Jesus Christ, even at an early age, Eddie joined and became a lifelong member of Mount Hermon Baptist Church. During his century-plus of living, Mr. Bias worked from the time he was 9 years old picking strawberries and harvesting sugar cane. He was later employed on a pleasure boat routed from New Orleans to St. Paul Minnesota. For over 20 years Pan American Airlines at Moisant Field and New Orleans International Airport was where he worked, first in the commissary and then as a skycap. While there he met many celebrities and even President Harry Truman. A U.S. Army World War II veteran, Mr. Bias' duty stations took him to Alabama, Sicily and Naples, Italy. He lived a good life and loved his family, sports, fun and travel. You might have found him in Jamaica, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, New York, California, Texas or other interesting places. A strong man until the end, he was still a licensed driver at the age of 102. In addition to his wife and parents, Mr. Bias was also preceded in death by siblings, Loris, Leonard, Willie and Wilbert Bias; Rosa Posey, Ellen Haynes and Eldora Allen. Survivors include a sister, Mytress Harris, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends who will truly miss him. A Home-going Celebration honoring the life of Mr. Eddie Bias will be held at Mount Hermon Baptist Church, 2153 N. Broad Street, New Orleans, LA 70119 on Friday, July 3, 2020 at 10 AM, Pastor John Jackson, Officiating. Interment Mount Olivet Cemetery, 4000 Norman Mayer Avenue, New Orleans, LA.
