Peggy & Family –

It’s with deepest sorrow and grief that I write you concerning Eddie. I grew up in Drexel Hill and graduated from St. Bernies in 1957, a few years prior to Eddie. He lived on the “rich side”, while I lived down the “hill” with the poor folks. Eddie always had great cars, especially the Triumph, which he had in high school (Bonner). He was a good guy and always nattily dressed (white bucks, buckle-in-back trouser, madras shorts, Flagg Flyers, etc.). He was a real “Ra-Ra”, as we named people back-in-the-days. He played excellent football at Bonner, a “football factory” in those days. While at Arizona, as a freshman, on a football scholarship, he roomed with Mr. October, Reggie Jackson, who was only on a football scholarship back then. We all know what happened to Reggie. I lived in the Arlington House (A House) in Ocean City, NJ, with him and Billy Watson during the summer of 1964, the year he met and married Peggy. Eddie was a very generous with his time and money. One Christmas he sent me a brand new Pine Valley sweater, which I treasure to this day, and the envy of all my golf friends. Rest in peace, Eddie, you were a great guy. I loved the stories about life, he used to tell.
