Very sorry to learn today of  Eddie's demise.   I do not know all pertinent facts.  Perhaps someone reading can fill us in as to exactly when and where and how the surviving family are coping.     Eddie was always a friendly chap who kept a friendly bar.   His warm smile and candor will be missed.

Is that Eddie Woolbright, who developed the developed Beverly Hills, the first major subdivision in Cebu City ? 

And also and opened a restaurant and a hardware store downtown—Eddie’s Log Cabin and Eddie’s Hardware and Auto Supply ?

I did eat there a few times while I was living in Brookfield Subdivision, Sudtunggan Road. I had the chance to talk a couple of times with him. He seemed to be a nice and friendly man. My condolences to his family and friends.

What an amazing, interesting life that guy had in the Philippines. For those interested... a great book called "The MacArthur Highway and Other Relics of American Empire in the Philippines", details a lot about his life.

Eddie Smit , born in England , raised in Italy long time girlfriend Baby

their two kids Massimo,Maurice and adopted girl name Marissa

 

he made it back to Italy died 2 hrs after his arrival . The Italian embassy

granted his girlfriend Baby emergency visa to accompany him back to Italy ..

 

I will miss him.. He had a very interesting and full life ..

I knew him for 10 yrs , about 5 yrs ago he about lost his leg due to an insect bite

infection , the doctor's in the Cebu advice him to go back to Italy for any hopes of saving

the leg .

 

It's not a healthy lifestyle , running an expat bar in Cebu ..

RIP Eddie he was about 66 yrs of age .

Ed was a good guy. Had some good times at his kids B-day parties. Ed always fire pit roasted a big cow leg. He gave my wife some basil seeds from Italy and we grew loads of it at our house for years. Before he had his bar he used to bake break and go round all the bars to sell it.

 

RIP Ed the Bread...

Ed the Bread - I met him a couple times at his bar.

 

A friend of my fiancee's worked for him for a little bit.

 

Nice he made it home.
