Eddie was one of the good guys from Catholic High. We scattered to the winds after high school but held good memories of all of the class. Enjoyed seeing him at reunions, thank you for your service and Rest In Peace.

Saddened to hear my cousin Eddie passed away. I can recall spending a few weekends with the Brucks Family when we were in grade school. And in our retirement years playing golf together a few times at Eagle Hill Golf Club. Ed was always a gentle man, he will be in my prayers.

I first met Ed at Catholic High back in the mid 50s. I recall he had a pretty decent basketball shot. He would come out here to Marche at different times, weddings funerals and the such. God bless You AND your Family. I hope to earn a spot on the other side with you. ED Pasierb.
