On Sunday July 24th, 2011 Edward Croke passed away although he had successfully battled cancer for many years. Whenever you were around 'Eddy', as we all knew him as, you were sure to be having a good time and surely laughing at his many jokes. Every March, he was a staple of the Two Mountains Irish Society's participation in the St-Patrick's Day Parade. Many people also knew him as Willie Nelson because of uncanny resemblance to Willie right down to the pony tail. The parade won't be the same without him. Rest in peace Eddy. A memorial service will be held in August.
