Truly will be missed
Posted by Rob Walker (former student) On Wednesday, February 14, 2018
I've recently heard of Eddie's passing. It stopped me temporarily, it didn't seem possible. I attended CCI '68 -'73. Eddie C. was my teacher and coach through those years in a variety of courses and more importantly in many sports and life lessons. He's always one of those important people I think of from my younger years.

My sincere condolences to his family and close friends who also mourn his passing. I won't stop thinking of Eddie, he was truly a classic educator in my mind. Kind Regards.

Good collegue

One of the best life-teachers I had the honour of knowing. His out-of-class teachings instilled self-determination, self-confidence, self-respect and tolerance.

Round 'em all, Coach, round 'em all.

Truly will be missed!

Coach:

You were such an inspiration to all you came in contact with, I remember my grade 9 year, not knowing which way was up and you made this individual feel welcomed and appreciated. Your humour, teaching style and ability to connect with your students was an influence on me taking up the profession. I will cherish your memory in my heart and can't thank you enough for what you meant to CCI and all those who you inspired. Rest well sir!

Deepest love and sympathies
