“Four Pockets, No Commitments”: Family Dedicates Bench in Memory of Eddie Kiesling

September 16th, 2016

On Saturday, October 8th at 1 pm, please join the Kiesling family in celebrating the life of a dear friend and neighbor, Eddie Kiesling, who left this world on February 8, 2016.

A bench in the Wyman Park Dell will be dedicated in his honor with the inscription, “Four Pockets, No Commitments,” which is what he said his biography would have been called.

Eddie loved spending time in the Dell playing frisbee with friends, writing, and enjoying a reprieve from the business of the city.

This bench will be a place for loved ones to rest and remember the good times shared in the park with our beloved friend.

 

The Kiesling Family and Friends of Wyman Park Dell would like to thank the following donors for their generous contribution toward Eddie’s bench:

Ellen & Javier Alvarez
Michael Anderson & Auggie Van Meter
