NORTHHAMPTON, N.H. – Edmund R. (Eddie) Quinn, 58, who promoted wrestling and boxing in Montreal for a quarter of a century, died yesterday of a cerebral hemorrhage.
Quinn was fatally stricken in the Hobb Nursing Home, which he and his wife, Gertrude, had purchased last June when he retired from the Montreal sporting world. He was born in Waltham, Mass.
When he started promoting matches in Waltham featuring the young Montreal wrestler Yvon Robert, he became interested in Montreal and moved there about 25 years ago.
