We raced with Eddie in a lot of the fairs and throughout Maine and N.H.. He drove some of our horses as well. This guy had the biggest smile and great personality in the racing business. He will be missed by all the horsemen and certainly his family. I'm sure he will be going to the Golden Starting Gate" shortly.

Eddie was the classic New England horseman. He had the respect of all the horsemen and rightly so. He will be greatly missed. Condolences to his family - may he Rest In Peace. Carol Malcolm, Pompano Beach, FL

Eddie Gilman was a GREAT driver before the day of shiny helmets, $6000.00 racebikes & handholds set behind your back. RIP Eddie & have fun behind the gate again with Nib Abbott!

Eddie was a wonderful person. He drove for us a few times after my husband had a heart attack. You couldn't ask for a nicer person or a better driver. RIP dear Eddie

Ed was a great friend & horseman. We had a lot of good times at Hinsdale, he talked softly but with wise words. Our thoughts and prayers to the family. He will be forever in our hearts. Jim & Vicki Mattison

Eddie was a great classmate and friend. We spent many an hour exchanging tales in high school. We lost contact after high school yet I often thought of the qualities that Eddie added to whatever group he chose to hang with. Exeter has lost a good guy.
