AikiWeb is very saddened to hear that Craig Eddy (6th dan, Aikido of Missoula
) passed away on Saturday, May 7. He started his aikido training with Mitsugi Saotome in Florida in 1975. He held multi-faceted careers as a cardiac surgeon, attorney, and hospital administrator as well as serving on the board of the Aikido Schools of Ueshiba.
I had the opportunity to meet Craig a number of times through my aikido career. He was a thoughtful, gentle man. My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.

Dear Jun, Never met this gentleman.It would appear that not only has the aikido fraternity lost a fellow aikidoka, it would suggest to me that Eddy Sensei and his career choices were such that he helped many people.The world is now short of a fine, compassionate man.I send my thoughts, sympathy and condolences to family , friends and fellow students.May he R.I.P
