James Nga and FamilyOur thoughts with beloved Aunt Josephine, Cousins Sharon and Eric during this time. Truly devastated receiving the news of the passing of our beloved Uncle Eddie. Remembering all the good and fun times that you have shared with me when I first started as an undergraduate student in London, Canada in the early 90s. Also, remembering all the life lessons you have taught me. The way you run your business is second to none - always energetic, lively and fun - you practically lifted everyone around you. Your humour often left everyone in stitches and I admire your generosity; the way you worked; and the way you have enjoyed your life. We will miss you a lot Uncle Ed..
Gary and Patricia GouldJosephine and Family, I was saddened over your loss of Fast Eddie. He was so much fun during our 'Petrosar' days. You guys invited us to the closed door Golden Palace opening and the start of your entrepreneurial lives. It was awesome. Eddie was so cool. I saw him many times over the years at Cheryl Ann's in Grand Bend. He carried himself like he was the mayor of the Bend. He is a great memory in my life.
Jeff JarvisMy condolences Josephine, Sharon, and Eric. I have many fond memories of working with Eddie and the rest of you in Grand Bend, with many stories I still share with people today.
Louise LeeMy deepest sympathies for your family's loss. I have no words that can ease your sorrow; but, it is true that time can gentle the sadness you feel right now and eventually the great times will outweigh the bad. I am glad to have met Uncle Eddie and have him added to our family when you, Sharon, married into our family. He was a proud man and I know he was proud of you.
Dr Linda Steele and familySo deeply sorry to hear of Eddie's passing. He gave my kids (Bram and Hilda) their first jobs and he was so good to them. We remember him so fondly. I still saw him many times every summer and he always asked after the kids. My deepest condolences to his family
Ross and Carolyn RussellEddy, what a great man and what a loss. We send our love to Eddys's family for strength at this difficult time. Eddy you will be missed by all who loved you in Sarnia. Our love Ross and Carolyn Russell.
Michael Bax and FamilySo sorry to hear of Eddie's passing. My mom and dad had just talked about the last time they were in Grand Bend and how Eddie made a point of sitting down with them and visiting with them outside the Cheryl Ann. It always amazed me how he would recognize, my parents, my brothers and sisters, and me every time we were in Grand Bend even though most of us had not worked for him in nearly 20 years. Visiting Grand Bend will not be the same without him. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed.
Kate Mason (nee Skinner)Josephine, Sharon and Eric, So very sorry for your loss! Eddie was a truly wonderful and kind man and will be missed greatly. I enjoyed working for him at the cheryl ann, dicks and Missy's for many years and was always truly amazed by his kindness in the years after when he would always give my kids free ice cream and remember everything about me and my family. He made the world a better place. Thinking of you all in this sad time!
Julie Sad news. Eddy was a huge part of Grand Bend for so many years. He will be fondly remembered by so many!
Michelle Gibbs-Ticknor My condolences to the family. My dad and I would have the best laughs with Eddie down on the beach or up on Main St. We always had a warm welcome from Eddie. The memories of Eddie will always bring a smile.
Giselle GallelloSuch sad news to hear of Eddies' passing. Our deepest condolences to the family.

Giselle, Greg & Nick Gallello
Bill & Liz ShanklySo sad to hear the news, I worked with Eddie in Petrosar and believe that is when we started calling him fast Eddie as he was always on the move . A great guy lots of laughs. We will always remember him with a smile on his face
Les & Teresa WillerOur deepest sympathies , sorry to hear of the loss of Eddie. We will alway have fond memories of Eddie and The Dragon Palace.
Julie Stellingwerff ( nee Hicks)I am very sad to hear of Eddie's passing. He was so well loved in the Grand Bend community. He had a wonderful memory for people, always greeting new and old friends with a friendly face, warm greeting and kind word. He will be missed.
JenI first met Fast Eddie when I was a little kid, walking with my dad one summer night in Grand Bend. Fast Eddie gave me an ice cream cone, and he and my dad talked about how important being a father is and making sure the kids of the next generation are better off than the parents that raised them....and hoping they grow up to raise kids that are even better than themselves. That was the first time I understood something like that - the selflessness, purpose, and ambition of a parent. For the rest of my childhood, I grew up on Fast Eddie's ice cream, and as an adult, he still gave me ice cream, along with the encouragement to keep working hard in school, following my dreams, and making my dad (and him) proud. He was my friend and my mentor, and I'll always be thankful for the influence he had on my life. Rest in peace, Dear Fast Eddie. My sincere condolences to his beloved wife, children, and grandchildren. You are his heart and soul, which lives on.
John Ma and familyPlease accept our heart sorrow and condolences to you and your family. It was an honor to have known Eddie for over 45 years. He was a wonderful man and a true friend. He will be truly missed. We will always remember Eddie with a smiling and Happy face!
Roger Wong and familyTo our dearest friend, Sharon, and your family. We were very fortunate to have met your father during his visits to Vancouver. Even though it was only a couple of times, we were able to see how much he adores you, Norm and his grandchildren. We remember him as a friendly, vibrant man who also loves his technical toys. Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow!
THE CARTER FAMILYWhat a great pleasure it was to have known you "Fast Eddy". For many years you made the strip in Grand Bend a better place, a nicer place. With all our love The Carters.
Julie Petrie (Reid)My heart breaks with this news. Our family was so lucky to have Eddie in our lives. He was a man with such a large heart and welcomed us all in with open arms, and ice cream ;) You ask my 8 year old what he wants to be when he grows up, and he will tell you "play in the NHL in the winter and sell ice cream all summer" Thank you Eddie, a roll model, a friend, a familiar welcoming face. You will be so greatly missed by many. Julie, Lucy and Grayson
Jay & BettyPlease accept our condolences for your loss. Our time of acquaintance may be short but it has been wonderful to have known Eddie. There are many jokes regarding in-law relations; but, in this case there is mutual respect and comradeship. He was a generous and loving man and he raised a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you for that.
Audrey and familyOur very deepest condolences for your family's lost, Sharon. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless and keep Uncle Eddie in His care.
Darlene, Mike, Julia and Victor PolowyOur deepest sympathies to your family and our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I met Eddie back in 1990 when I rented the Taco Shop in the back of the Cheryl Ann that one summer. That was the start of a relationship that I fondly looked forward to each summer, as my husband and I and then later on my children, would visit Eddie on the strip almost annually. We would discuss our plans and business dreams and he was always so kind and cheerful with my children offering them ice cream and the memories of being able to make it themselves inside Missy's. We were all saddened to hear the news and our visits to Grand Bend will never be the same. Thank you Eddie for giving me the entrepreneurial spirit and the inspiration to try and follow some of those dreams! Your father always talked about his family and he was very proud of all,of you! May you celebrate his life as he has touched many of our lives in a positive and lasting way! Thank you, Eddie.
Greg GallelloEddie always had a smile on his face, and he always had a story to tell, anytime of the day rain or shine in GB. Definitely a character, and one that we should all look to be more like in our peaceful town of Grand Bend. He could make you laugh even on the worst of days! Sincere condolences to the family!
