Lived in Marina del Ray, CA, died 1/8/2011 after a long battle with cancer. Edward (Eddie) Swartz
I have many memories of Eddie ... inside and outside of school and sports ... he will certainly be missed.
I knew Ed from our first days at Carter-Avery Elementary on through NHS, in addition to other community groups. He will be missed.

Eddie and I dated in high school and for a short time after. Then we lost contact. About four years ago I learned of his father's passing and posted an email on the funeral home website. We emailed for several months and I got to see what a wonderful, caring, intelligent man he had become. He had a terrific life even with some physical limitations (bad back!). He will be missed by all who loved him. I know he was still great (and best friends) with David Carlson. If anyone can put me in contact with Dave, I'd be grateful.

Oh this is sad.
I REMEMBER EDDIE WELL FROM OUR CHILDHOOD. WE GREW UP IN THE 'HOOD TOGETHER. HE ALWAYS HAD MY BACK IN CUBSCOUTS... HE WAS ALWAYS A GOOD GUY.
I grew up with Eddie and Rob Rossi through Avery-Carter. I lived with him and Dave Carlson for a while in Wetswood. Through my band years Eddie would be around at Bobbie Field's house for band practice. I reflect on many happy memories. Another legend of Needham.

I grew up with Eddie and we lived in the same neighborhood. He was a great guy. We lost touch with eachother for some years but I finally got his phone number in California when I called we remember all the good times we had and he never mentioned to me his illness. Less than a year later he passed away. I will always remember him, even though we were not really cousins we used to call eachother cousins because we had more than just a friendship, He always had my back. I will miss him very much.
Bobby, Bill, Rob, Beth, Susan, Gerry and Larry,
It was great to read your posts in fond memory of our dear fun-loving friend Eddie ("Bubba"). Like you all, I miss Eddie and treasure the often carefree fun-loving (bordering on out-of-control" GAF) times we all had together. I have beautiful sweet memories of Eddie with each of you (and with many other classmates), whether playing basketball at Larry's house, swimming in Bobby's pool, rocking out to the Subterraneans featuring "Billy" and "Bobby" or just plain partying, celebrating life and being stupid like only Needham teenagers of our generation could but no longer can.
