Eddie Roussel aka “Spaghetti” beloved son of Ed and Christine Roussel, sustained grave injuries after a fall from his friend’s apartment building. Though doctors worked tirelessly to save his life, Eddie succumbed to his injuries.
Eddie was well-known and adored by a wide range of people from all walks of life. To the Doylestown Hospital staff members who had the honor of working with and getting to know Eddie, he was remembered for his generosity, hospitable nature, sense of humor, a spirit of adventure, easy conversation, and amazing head of hair.
His mother, Christine Roussel, the Senior Executive Director of the Pharmacy, Laboratory, and Medical Research at Doylestown Hospital, could not have been more proud to share with Eddie a career in healthcare and healing at DH. Christine is more than grateful that so many of us knew and loved her amazing son.
A GoFundMe campaign was created to support the Roussel family. Janet Lyons the organiseer of the fundraiser’s page wrote;
This beautiful family has touched many lives with their thoughtfulness and generosity, and so many of us are looking to do the same for them. Any donations made here will be given directly to the Roussel family. We thank you so very much in advance, as your act of kindness is one small way to help the Roussel family as they find their way through this unthinkable tragedy and their grief.
Eddie was special, and I was his gifted support teacher in grades 6-8. His kindness and thoughtfulness touched many lives. During the last week of his 8th grade year, he took a few minutes to write me this email. I ran into him in the supermarket earlier this year with his girlfriend and he gave me one of the biggest smiles and hugs. He gave me his cell phone number and told me to keep in touch. That was him…. a great kid with a big heart.
