A gentleman with a heart of gold. He was my only Uncle and we are grateful that we had some time with him earlier this year when he was in Australia on what was to be his last holiday. He was so proud of his children and their families. I remember visiting the Orr gang on a Saturday Uncle Eddie would be busy in tre kitchen with his tea towel over his shoulder getting tea ready. Always amazed me that he could feed the gang and the four of us who arrived unannounced. RIP Uncle Eddie, you will be very sadly missed. Love to the family you done an amazing job caring for your Dear Dad. In his final weeks. Love from Jackie Brendan and kids.
Peacefully, after a short but bravely fought illness, on 25 October 2014, at home, surrounded by his children,
Lizzie, Steve, Gerry, Jonny, Ali, Kate and Jenny. Eddie, much loved by his late wife Elizabeth, brother John and family in Australia, son-in-law Paul, daughters-in-law Clare and Mairi and grand daughters Amy, Lucy, Rebecca, Jasmine, Lilly and India. Service to be held at St Cuthbert’s RC Church on 3 November at 9.30 am, thereafter to Mount Vernon Cemetery for 10.20 am, to which all are welcome. Family flowers only please but a collection will be taken at the Church in aid of the Marie Curie Hospice.
