Birth: Mar. 3, 1932
Harrisburg
Dauphin County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 29, 1990
Harrisburg
Dauphin County

A son of Robert Elmer Quaid and Mary Helen McAtee of Harrisburg, Eddie was a steelworker by profession, served in the Korean War and coached football, Little League Baseball and various sports for many years. He and his wife had one child - a son. Eddie was raised by his sister, Elsie McQuaid Stambaugh Nikoloff, because his mother died when he was an infant. Eddie had a total of 12 brothers and sisters. He was the youngest. Some of his siblings bore the surname of Quaid, like their father. Some of them had their names changed to McQuaid, supposedly by various nuns. Eddie, as he is known to family and friends, loved kids and absolutely adored his son and grandson. Unfortunately, he died of lung cancer before his grandaughter was born. His family was very important to him. Eddie was a generous man both with his time, labor and with food. His wife's sub shop failed in part because Eddie gave the food away to all the homeless people who came in asking for something to eat.
