Phil Eder - Blue 72-76

Post by wgeise » Tue Dec 11, 2012 1:12 am

It is with great regret that I inform my fellow shipmates that Phil Eder passed away on December 8, 2012. I lost track of Phil in the early 80's after his graduation from the University of Tennessee with a philosophy degree. My wife and I moved to the Knoxville area and managed to reconnect with Phil in 2005. Phil continued to live in the Knoxville area doing a variety of jobs, most recently working with Comcast. Phil will be missed by all of his firends and family.
