Hassell, a Corsicana native was shot to death on Nov. 1.
Perhaps best known for his roles in the 2010 Oscar-nominated film “The Kids Are All Right” and the TV show “Surface,” Hassell was only 30-years-old.
One of his last films, “Bomb City,” was filmed in Dallas.
From a Hollywood acting career, to skating and recently surfing, Hassell’s parents told CBS 11 News he was a man of many talents.
“In Eddie’s 30 years, he lived life,” his mother Sandi Hassell said. “He did.”

“I called him every night to tell him good night and that I loved him,” she said. “I believe they said he got shot at 1:50 a.m. I talked to him at 12:45 a.m. and the last thing he told me was ‘Happy Halloween, Mama. I love you.’ My life changed forever because somebody did a stupid thing. For nothing and took his life.”
“Being the kind of people we are we can forgive this guy, but I think he needs to do his time for the rest of his life,” David Hassell said. “He took my son… ”
“Not just from us, but from the world,” Sandi said. “For no reason.”
Grand Prairie Detectives determined the offense was a random robbery by Anton, who was not a resident of the City of Grand Prairie.
