This is so sad. We met you many times Eddie. Hungary, Italy, Norway, BD, KL, etc etc...
We did your jump number 200 in PTL B at that night in US, that was amazing jump.
You were so friedly guy, one of the friendlies that i have ever met...we came to visit you couple of yrs ago to your place...you gave us room to us, showed us exits..gave us food and drink...
We were planning to come to visit you again to BT with my GF.

Eddie, Thank you, for all, I´m lost of words now...I will miss you so much...

See you Eddie

He was an awesome cameraguy.. I really like his old 16mm stuff he showed once to me. I wonder what happens to his whole film archive.. I would be happy to organise a cutter and a steenbeck to get it all together..

RIP Eddie :|

Uh...Eddie.
I'm glad he finished his movie, i mean his "big movie". I'm sure the sitizen of little bavarian town -- Eddies home town-- like it. Sure they do -- almost all of them have participated in it playng, dubbing, makin stuff and decorating rooms. He wanted to make it perfect. He's spent a lot of time and energy creating it and he finished it.
And he was filming base with 16mm -- no mater how good his filming was -- sometimes perfect sometimes just ok and sometimes fuckuped -- he was keepin on doing it. He wanted to show base in slow-motion and he was pushing it hard and trying to get his best shot and he was the only person i know who was playing with the 16mm.
And i'm sure that he finally did his ws base -- the thing he was preparing to for a long time.
And he has visited all the "glorious" base spots -- skyscrapers and cave and bridges and TV-towers...
He was just doing everything he felt the passion to do, and he didn't waste his time calculating the chances of success -- he was just doing it in full force. He dreamed about something and that was the reason enough for "start and try" and the reason to say "yes" to it.
Hard to describe, but it was something in his way of living his life that is worthy of respect.
My deepest condolences to
his ww friends, to german crew

and to his mom and dad
and Tracy, please, say it to them then you'll see them. I remember them and i'm sending my warmest thoughts to them.

Somewhere I've got a photo of Eddie clowning around in the supermarket at Bridge Day. He was mock-sodomizing an advertising poster. I'll see if I can find it and post it.

This is a big loss for all of us.

Damn. :(
