Eddie started his business career as a Clerk on the Montreal Stock Exchange while studying at McGill University in Montreal where he graduated with a Degree in Accounting (RIA). He worked for GM while he and Peggy lived in Los Angeles for a short time before returning to Toronto, Ontario where he worked until his retirement in 1986 for Robertshaw Controls, Etobicoke - first as the Controller and later as their Director of Sales. After retiring his constant companion and best friend was his dog “Odie”.
