Loving husband, father, grandfather; relaible friend and neighbor, lifelong Chicagoan, proud WWII Veteran, humble Chicago Firefighter of Truck 44 Engine 55, loyal Brother of the Barrel and the Brigade, optimistic Front Nine golfer, dedicated Our Lady of Victory parishioner, 8am mass usher and Holy Name Society member, friendly "Hi ya' Smiley!" and "Hey Good Looking!" greeter to all.

Eddie is survived by his loving wife of 61 years Rose, daughter Susan (son-in-law Scott) Hoffman, son Robert, grandson Michael and granddaughter Hailey. Friends and family are invited to visitation from 3-9pm on Wednesday, August 7 at Malec & Sons, 6000 W. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago. Funeral and internment private. In Eddie's honor, play a round of golf and lift a silent prayer when any fire truck goes by.
