From Checkpoint, 6:26 pm on 15 June 2021

Philanthropist and businessman Sir Eion Edgar is being remembered for his selfless generosity, and his wicked bowling arm.

Sir Eion died yesterday afternoon from cancer at the age of 76 in his Queenstown home.

The many organisations he gave to are remembering the man who made connections wherever he went.
