My deepest condolences to the Mulkern family. I am deeply saddened at the loss of my longtime friend and mentor Eddie . I was honored to have spent many decades and through good times and bad Eddie was always there for me .He was a consummate gentlemen and family man . Mary , you were his universe and his children his world, his love for all of you was unconditional. Eddie was not only a tremendously knowledgeable Chelsea historian but an incredible source of U.S. history and World history. Eddie was a true character with character with incredible wit and humor , and he would be truly befitting of the title " True Chelsea guy" through and through, his love for Chelsea unsurpassed . I am certain we all will be looked upon by Eddie whom rapidly found the Stairway to Heaven. Godspeed Eddie , you will be dearly missed and loved forever.

Eddie was a huge part of one of the great Chelsea families, the Mulkerns. Ed was simply someone you always looked forward to talking and laughing with, and left you feeling good. As really good friends to his late brothers John and David, and Trish, I got to see the family in their element on Kimball Road. Humble, kind and accepting were the attributes that come to mind. Eddie was a great example of the good that people can do. Volunteering as a mentor to the Post, and someone you could always talk to...he disarmed you with his laughter. God Bless you Eddie. God bless your family.

So sorry to hear of Eddie's passing. I worked with him way back in the Sagamore Pharmacy days. He was always the nicest person. The last time I saw him was my Mom's funeral in 2019. Same old Eddie. Just a great person. So sad I will never run into him again. May he rest in peace. My sincerest condolences to his family.

My condolences to the Mulkern family. I knew Eddie growing up in Chelsea. He was such a good guy. We hadn´t seen each other in years but did connect again via Facebook. I often use the expression, he was a real Chelsea guy. What I mean by that is he was a gentleman and he loved the City. Eddie was a Chelsea guy. May he Rest In Peace .

I am saddened to learn of Eddie's passing. We both worked in the Conversion group in the phone company during the 80s & 90s. He was one of the funniest guys I ever met, would always crack me up with his jokes and impressions. I still have a caricature sketch of some of our crew drawn by another guy in our crew where Eddie is the central character, tall & thin. He would often quote from 'Arthur ', one of his favorite movies. He was truly a nice person liked by all who knew him. I regret I'd lost touch with him when our group disbanded and we all went to different assignments. My heartfelt condolences to his family. Rest in peace, Eddie.
