Eddie Coogan 1958 – 2013
Eddie grew up in Virginia, son of a Navy dad. He came to New Hope in the late 70’s. His first job here was bartending at the Baron and then he went on to bartend at Odette’s for many years. He then started his own in-home dog grooming business and became very successful in the area. He served on the Board of FACT and was on a committee for New Hope Celebrates. Eddie was known all over New Hope for his charitable work in the community and proudly marched each year in the Gay Pride parade.
