Edward John Negri

Saturday, May 18, 2013
I have very fond memories of having lunch at Herren's. My parents Lee and Pat Leike knew Ed and enjoyed many meals. From a teen's perspective, Ed was always so friendly and courteous. Will always remember the wonderful cinnamon buns. :) God bless Ed and his dear family. He was a wonderful man!

The Negri family shared love and light from childhood memories on Keswick Ct. to later times in early days of civil rights activism in Atlanta. Mr. Negri was a lighthouse in troubled harbor. His rest is well earned! May God comfort the family.

My family and I lived next to Ed & Jane for the past 12 years.He was a great neighbor and was one of the most interesting people that I have ever talked with.His mind was very sharp and he shared many Atlanta "stories" with me through the years.We will miss him but he left behind a great legacy that helped shape Atlanta into a great city.

We are honored to have known Ed Negri, a man of strong integrity who had an intense understanding that each of us has the power to improve the lives of those around us, individually and in society. His life embodied a sense of civic duty that contributed substantially to Atlanta's evolution from a regional economic center imprisoned by the racism of the old south to modern, vibrant, international city. They talk of the "greatest generation." Ed was a shining example.
But it was his love for individuals that called him to serve the public good, and it that love for which he is most remembered.
We will miss him dearly.
