Before my time but I met him as a kid in the parking lot of the St. Lawrence Market and he couldn't have been a nicer guy.

RedLeaf:
Eddie roomed with my grandparents in Guelph ON back in the 50's before the stardom. Stories galore about him. Met him a few times over the years. Great guy and will be missed! RIP Eddie!
