I am sad to announce that Eddie Taylor, Stripercrazy, passed on to the next world this afternoon. He was the biggest man I ever knew, and the most cheerful person I ever met. The last few years have been very hard for him, chemo therapy, radiation, scary amounts of blood exchanges, yet Ed took it all in stride. He never let it get to him, or stop him from laughing. I don't think anyone ever met the man and didn't love him.


Ed was one of the ten or so members who showed up for the Rhody Castoff in 2004 or 5. The castoffs and other events helped to form a group of about 40 who could be called upon to show up for adventures, or bar B Qs, even in February.

As he got older his desire to plug from slippery rocks at night in the rain, shifted to just being happy to sit in a chair with a spiked rod, hoping to land a skate or a spider crab on a nice afternoon. Or even (gasp) freshwater fishing.


Godspeed Boss. Wherever you are bound, everyone will smile to see you coming.

Eddie was a special man. A man that I considered it an honor to be his friend. I will always treasure the many days spent with him.

And with the  the rest of the RI crew I mourn his loss. God Speed "Boss"

Astonishing bad news. What a shock.

I never knew Eddie was ever sick.

He would come to the monthly Rhody Fly Rodders Meetings.

I had not seen Ed the last 1 1/2 years since we haven't had club meetings.

He was a gentle, loving, fun sole. Another lost friend that crossed over the Bridge to Eternity.

Save us a space along side where the catching is always heavenly.
