When he was not working as a TV Actor, Eddie was known for his love of reading fiction and he would spend hours most afternoons engrossed in a book. Mr. Asner (also known as Yitzhak Edward Asner) also spent ages visiting with his older sister most weeks when he was able to spare a bunch of hours. Ever since he was a boy in Kansas City, many remember Eddie as a caring person with wonderful magic tricks that shocked everyone.

A wake was scheduled for at the church in Kansas City. The service will commence at 2PM with a reception to follow hosted by his older sister at the graveside where refreshments will be served. All are welcome to the visitation to be held at church at noon.

"[on making the transition from the comedy Mary Tyler Moore (1970) to its dramatic spin-off series Lou Grant (1977)] We were really worried about changing over from a three-camera, half-hour comedy to a one-camera, full-hour drama. The audience wasn't ready for the switch--even CBS billed us in their promos as a comedy. In fact, the whole thing was impossible. But we didn't know that. (IMDB)"
