Reginald Eddy

June 30, 1944 - April 1, 2012

Tribute

Reginald Frank Eddy
Frank passed at home with his family by his side close to his favorite place, the fireplace in the living room, on April 1, 2012.
Predeceased by his father Jim in 1977 and survived by mother Phyllis, his wife Elaine, sons Aaron (Carolyne) and Stephen (Bianca), siblings Georgina, Jim, Helen (Tom), Kathy (Larry), Pat (Dave) and Dan (Judy). His many nieces and nephews will always remember him as Uncle Ice Cream.
Born in Chilliwack June 30, 1944, Frank grew up in Agassiz and started his logging career at age 14. He continued logging at Zeballos and the Queen Charlotte Islands before breaking in falling at Bear Creek (Harrison Lake) in 1962. He worked up and down the West Coast with his brother Jim and his friend Bill Marsh before moving to Cowichan Lake.
Frank worked as a faller at BCFP, Port Renfrew until an accident in 1983 left him paralyzed. He always said if not for his falling partner and best friend Earle Laforge he would have died that day. Never to be stymied by circumstance he was back to work within the week of being released from hospital as a saw grinder. His final work was as the dispatcher at Honeymoon Bay Dry Land Sort until retirement in 2002.
Frank’s greatest joys were his family, dogs (especially Jessica), hunting, gardening, and his daily “walk” to Chicken Joes.
Frank will be forever be remembered for his tenacity, intelligence, and caring.
We wish to extend our greatest appreciation for support to Worksafe, We Care, Community Nursing and Dr. Postuk.
A memorial service will be held April 21st at 2:00 at the Honeymoon Bay Hall.
In lieu of flowers donations to Prostate Cancer or BC Paraplegic Association will be appreciated. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

Joe and I, along with the BC Paraplegic Association, would like to extend our condolences to the family and his friends. Frank was an inspiration to those of us who suffered a spinal cord injury. He never let his injury slow him down or stop him from doing anything in life and others followed his great example.

I feel lucky to have had a short time to get to know Frank and be able to listen to his stories. My condolences to you Elaine & family. I will always remember Frank.
