82, Whitney Pier

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Edward ‘Eddie’ Anthony Hawco on March 29, 2013, at home.

He was the last remaining member of his immediate family.

Eddie was a member of Holy Redeemer parish. He was a longtime employee of City of Sydney before retiring. He loved watching hockey especially, his favourite team, Toronto Maple Leafs. Eddie could always be found at the local ball fields enjoying the baseball games. Eddie will always be remembered by his family and friends for his happy go lucky ways.
