Edd Byrnes


Edd Byrnes became a teen idol from his role as Kookie on the hip detective series “77 Sunset Strip.” Kookie was the cool young parking lot attendant at the club next to the detective agency run by two smooth PI’s played by Roger Smith and Efrem Zimbalist Jr. Byrnes character was a breakout star, snapping his fingers and combing his ducktail on the popular series that ran on ABC in the late 1950s to early 1960s.

Not sure what to say?

One thing Edd loved was to make other people happy. He would go out of his way to think of others before himself. I know that Edd one day will get to see others again. I know he now lives in everlasting peace, where there is no pain or sadness.
Love You Edd!!! See You Soon....

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

I would like to express my deepest sympathies for the loss of your loved one, who will be remembered for his contribution to the film industry. May you find comfort and help in God during this time of mourning.

As a teenager watching the show and just in awe as I watched you walk out of the club with the comb in your hair and looking so debonair. RIP

I am sorry regarding the loss of your loved one. May the God of Comfort, continue to comfort the family, during these difficult times.
