I sat behind Eddie for four years. He was smart, funny, a character, and a loyal friend. And he had a secret identity, Mighty Mouth. We went our separate ways after graduation but I hope he had a good life until the very end. He definitely deserved to live longer.

Hi Bill,  I remember Eddie. Read that he is gone & felt sad.  I think Mighty Mouth was the name of our senior show. I did costumes & I think we had a post party at my house on Menard.  My mom sat in the kitchen laughing at the teenage band playing in the living room. The whole block could hear it!  

As we Greeks say, may his memory be eternal.  Joanne Georgulis

Eddie was a really great guy and we were in several classes together at Austin. The guys I hung around with would play his Church two handed touch footbal team for practice. I sat directly across from Eddie in Calculus class Senior year. During a test near the end of senior year Eddie started singing fairly loudly So Happy Together. I asked Eddie to stop as I could not concentrate and he igniored me. This went on for several minutes. I had not studied very much for this test as I was out late the night beforew hanging with other Seniors and checking out the beaches. I told Eddie I would punch him if he did not stop. Eddie I think laughed and I proceeded to jump up and hit him in the face. Not my best moment for sure but everyone including the teacher was laughing. Eddie and I shook hands and it was all over with! 

Eddie may you rest in peace and I will say a prayer for your family.
