Eddy Hoffman

Would love to be able to resume con­tact with an old friend from SSHS, Eddy Hoff­man (not sure if cor­rect spelling).
Eddy was orig­i­nally from Kenya. Last known address (by me) was North Beach.
Eddy often attracted teacher trou­ble, mainly due to his long hair. Amaz­ingly that was still a bit of a no no in 66 and 67.

We shared class with other notable SSHS rat­bags Mick Mal­one, Rus­sell Wade and Greg Stevens.

Any help with con­tact details would be much appre­ci­ated.

Regards
Graham

Gra­ham,

I believe Eddy’s par­ents or sib­lings may still live in their orig­i­nal fam­ily home at Abbett Street, Scar­bor­ough. The spelling is cor­rect by the way. I know his sis­ter Carol mar­ried Christo­pher Pinch (SSHS Year 12 — ’66 or ’67) so you may find her by that mar­ried name in the book. Bril­liant Guy I agree.

Cheers

Hi Norm

Thanks for that. I remem­ber Chris Pinch well. Coin­ci­dently he and I were in the same pri­mary school (Bentley-​a long way from Scar­bor­ough) classes for a few years.

I remem­ber Eddy’s house in Abbott St. Didn’t know his folks still lived there. As men­tioned in my orig­i­nal post, (post SSHS), Eddy, Carol and at least one other brother were shar­ing a house at North Beach.

You’ve been a great help. Will fol­low up.

Regards

Graham

Hi again Norm

Found C & C Pinch @ Menora in white pages.

Bit late to fol­low up tonight. Will give it a go tomor­row.

Thanks again.

Gra­ham

PS. Should know you. Looked at your pro­file. Appears you were a year behind Eddy and I. Did you play any sport for the school? eg footy, cricket, rugby. I got sucked in by one of the sports teach­ers (cant remem­ber his name, but a good guy) that was a rugby nut­ter, and formed SSHS first ever rugby team. Even conned a cou­ple of us into play­ing for his club side on Sat­ur­days. Gave it up when player from our team (the Sat­ur­day one) bit the ear off an opponent.
