Paster Eddie Whitehead, 89, died at his home in Bristol on Sunday. A civil rights leader in town and a gentle, decent man who served in the U.S. Army during World War II, as chaplain of the city police and a founding member of the NAACP, Whitehead left the community a better place than he found it.
He was the founder and pastor of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church for many years.
