OBITUARY

Edward Charles Diroff

Edward “Eddie” Diroff, February 26, 1971 – March 13, 2020

Eddie, the youngest of seven, survived by his siblings, Mary (Bill) Brennan, Pete (Tracey), Tucker (Mandy), Bob (Raquel), and Leo; also, several dear nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Preceded in death by his parents, Larry and Mary Helen, and his eldest brother, Greg.

Being the youngest of seven, Eddie soon was referred to as “Little Eddie”, a nickname that followed him throughout his adult life, even at a stature of just under 6’ tall! Eddie had a fun-loving nature and really strived to live life to its fullest. He enjoyed being with family and friends – had such an infectious laugh – you always knew when Eddie was in the room. A finish carpenter by trade, when Eddie was around, he was the go-to for “can you do me a favor and build ….?” (You can fill in the blank.)

A native of Michigan, he took residence in Florida for the last twenty years, having also lived in both Tennessee and South Carolina during a portion of his adult life. As Eddie LOVED the ocean, his heart always brought him back to Florida, his final resting place.

His lasting contribution was the donation of eyesight to two individuals in need. Eddie would have been happy to know that he played a part in bringing sight to someone who will now feel the joy and blessings of being able to see their children and grandchildren grow.

Eddie will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. Rest in peace dearest brother.

My deepest condolences to the entire Diroff friends and family. I’m so very sorry for your loss.
I have nothing but fond memories going all the way back to Eddie coming to our softball practices while Mary coached. He was just a wee little thing then , always with a smile.
May you be comforted with the knowing he’s never gone from your hearts , he’s basking in the loving glow of those hat have gone before him.
Much Love to you all.

I remember Ed from playing ball in the summers against and with each other until 6th Grade when we began attending the same school. We shared a few things in common once we became friends. The characteristic about him that will stay with me is his nature...he competed hard when it was time and was relaxed when it was time. He always had a smile on his face and it was hard to be upset around him. RIP Ed...you will be missed and you won't be forgotten.
