GMF is sad to learn of the recent passing of Edward "Eddie" Huffman, Sr., former frontman for the Soul Stirrers. Huffman died May 13, at age 71.

Huffman joined the Soul Stirrers in 1973 and led some of the group's popular numbers, including "Lord, Remember Me." In 2000, he co-organized a quartet called the Soul Savers. A later reorganization of the group led to the release of the traditional gospel quartet album, Testimony, in 2004.

A homegoing service was held May 28, at Divine Mortuary in Lithonia, GA.  Our condolences are extended to the Huffman family during this difficult time.
