  • Whoever wrote this obit did an outstanding job! Eddie was a gregarious soul. He taught me so much about life. He had respect, a code of honor, and a sense of humor unmatched! Despite his size, he was a gentle giant, loving, caring, and giving. He had an intellect that could engage you in conversation on any topic. I love Eddie always will and I have nothing but love and respect for his mother and sisters whom I send my deepest sympathies for the loss of their son and brother.

  • Not sure this page is long enough to write this note: Eddie you were my “Big” brother. Always took the time to talk with me and give me advise. You also had an amazing talent when it came to remodeling….My home is proof of that. Having known you all the years that I have, we sure enjoyed each other’s company…I have a hole in my heart that will never heal with your loss. You were such a gentle giant in all you did. The Ridge Pub will never be the same without your presence….however we all have the fantastic memories…Keep winning the lotto, keep rooting on the Buffalo Bills and build whatever you want up in heaven. Give Fay a big hug from all of us. I also want to thank your family for sharing you with us. They truly are amazing people as you are….I already miss you and my tears will not stop….Love ya Buddy Your Lil Sis.

    - Kathy
  • I express my sincere condolences for your loss.
