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.

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!


"Look after your nickels and dimes...."

"Clear the track, there goes Shack",  Eddie you were one of the great ones, I loved you, an icon has passed. What a way to wake up.

My mum plays bridge with his wife Norma.
