So sorry to hear about Russ. He and Betty were "neighbors" of my mom at Mather Place Wilmette for many years and they were good friends. They were all fine examples of The Greatest Generation" -- we will miss them greatly.
Cump's life was the equivalent to a hole in one. He lived it straight down the fairway, distinguished, admired, dignified, respected while always being respectful and generous. It doesn't get any better. As he plays on through to the back nine I'm sure he's already challenging Ben Hogan to a round, and of course only after getting Mimi's permission. We'll miss you.
I met Russ Eddy in the early 1960's. He was a successful, humorous, pleasant, intelligent, and generous man. More importantly, he was a loving and dependable husband, father, and grandfather. He will be missed.
Loved by friends and family. Left the world better than he found it.
I met Cump in 1987 and have been his granddaughter-in-law since 1993. I have known and loved him for over half my life. I will remember his love for his family, his passion for golf, the ease in which he told a story, his cardigan sweaters, his jokes, and the way he'd fold his napkin at the end of a meal. He was the kind of person that people LOVED to be around. He was classy, kind and always interesting. I'm thankful to be part of his lovely, loving family. I will continue to celebrate him through the many memories and stories. Until we meet again.
