Thank you for your story about our Uncle Eddy. You captured the essence of the man he was. We were with him two weeks ago in Nampa and he was telling Ezekiel, his great grand son (In Indian way) he was proud of him for playing football.

Eddy was a member of the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, Fort Hall, Idaho and his family here is holding a memorial-pot luck dinner Saturday March 29, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at the Fort Hall Housing Authority conference room.

The Fort Hall Reservation is located on I-15 Exit 80 Respectfully, David Archuleta

Attached is a photo of Eddie Edmo, a classmate of mine, in his Native American regalia.  I've known Ed for many years.  We were/are members of The Dalles High School class of 1957.  I'm the self-appointed keeper of the class list, the "Gone, but not Forgotten" list etc.  I notified my email class list of his passing and this photo a group of about 82.  He surely will be missed!

Good bye Ed,
Darrel G. McBride

I remember my high school days wih Edmo. He taught me the true definition of sportsmanship. This gentleman is by far one of the greatest umpires and most well-respected men I ever met in high school. I was honored to have been along side him during my football days.

Thank you Edmo, for all you've done in the community and for what you have taught other athletes like myself the true meaning of sportsmanship. Rest in Peace, man.
