Sincere condolences to Linda and Timothy and my cousins Emily and Arline.
Eddie was always a happy go lucky kind of guy always willing to help and do favors for people. I’ll always remember how much entertainment he was with the tent that he procured. My brother Michael my husband Mike and Jack Pingree and Gary Knafler can all attest to the shenanigans that went on in that tent. Eddie was a very entertaining character !
God Bless “Buddy O” !
