I met Ed on line, researching our Albert family from Butler Co., PA. He was always very kind and sharing. I will miss our communications and am sorry that I never got to meet him.

Ann, Joyce and Rob. I am terrible sorry about Ed's passing. We have been out of town and just logged into the paper. I have many memories of Ed. We had a fun time together doing his "do". We colored, cut, styled and laughed lots. He was truly a man of many talents, generous, and a wealth of information. My husband Ed and he had several chats on the Civil War. He will be missed. May God comfort you all during this difficult time. Ann, you were his delight! And Joyce & Rob.... he talked endlessly of you and he was so proud of your accomplishments.
Hugs and prayers...Joyce & Ed
Ed gave of himself in so many ways and as Ralph Waldo Emerson said: "the greatest gift is a portion of yourself." I am so sorry for the loss of your husband, father, friend. Trusting that the memories of love and life shared will help comfort you.
So sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I served with Ed in Vietnam. May God grant you peace. I know you have climbed the stairway to heaven. Your Vietnam brother.
I am so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. We were together in Vietnam at Bien Hoa. Rest in peace Vietnam buddy!
Ed was a source of inspiration for me when I first ran for Eureka City Council. I remember with fondness many campaign meetings, his favorite meeting place the restaurant at Murray Field. As Debbie Israel said, his fingerprints were on many political fliers and mail pieces, mine included. His mastery of the computer created walking lists that were a dream for any candidate. I am saddened that he has left us and will cherish memories of the time we spent together.
I think I only met you once but I wanted to say, I am sorry I missed the services. Also, I miss all the times playing Scrabble in the kitchen at SSB, he was a great competitor. Take care
Ed was one of the good guys. I had worked with him at the Social Services Dept. in Eureka and truly enjoyed his sense of humor and his kindness. I am sorry to learn of his passing. My sincerest condolences to his family.
Ann,Joyce,Rob,, take care of yourselves, Ed, i`ll see you sometime later, lots of love
Dear Ann--What a great Democrat he was, a clear thinker. I loved sitting around with him deciding who should run for what in the next local elections. Wow, I miss him! I'm so sorry he's gone.
Dear co Anh, Robert, and Joyce:
We are so saddened by chu Ed's sudden passing. Our two families have shared many fond holidays memories together. Our hearts and prayers go out to you. We will miss chu Ed dearly.
Cuong and family.
To Ann, Rob and Joyce,
We have been blessed to have met and to know the Albert Family for over 30 years. You have been like Family to us in many ways through good times and bad times.
Ed and I became friends fast although we did also have a common bond that being our wonderful Vietnamese Wives.
A few time capsuls of my fun with Ed:
We enjoyed backpacking and fishing in the Trinity Alps. Once (at Boulder Lake he was suspected of throwing rocks in the middle of the night then yelling out "There's a bear out there". Another time at Fox Creek Lake he made a huge fire and I (we?) became worried that CDF helicopters would be there soon. One other trip as we were hiking up a very steep mountain going to Bingham Lake we were exhausted and stoped for a rest and Ed pulls a 6-pack of Beer out of his backpack and offers me one. What a teaser ~ I love you Ed!
Ed did like to tease but Ed was always loving, generous, helpful, strong and supportive. He was a person we can all learn from and cherish having known. His Family should be so proud of him. I am certain he is in Heaven now. We can continue to love Him and learn from Him.
Good Bye for now to our Friend
Love, the Bill Daley Family
Dear Ann and Family , We are so sad to have lost our good friend, Ed. We will miss him greatly; his gentleness and compassion for all.
Ron and Shell Daley

Joyce, my sincerest condolences to you and your family. I am truly sorry for your loss. Please know that my families prayers and well wishes are with you all in the time of sadness.
Dear Ann, Robert & Joyce - I don't know any of you personally, but I sure know a lot about all of you thru Ed. He was a good friend and "Cuz" as you see I am the one who worked on genealogy with him. I was so looking forward to our visit this summer and had a lot of family lined up to meet him. Some of them know him from being on line and will be ever greatful for his help on the family tree. He was a gem and I will really miss him. We had many laughs and fun searching the family tree - just think of how many people he will meet personally in heaven. He was so very proud of all of you and loved you very much. I am so sorry and may God bless and comfort each of you. Love your Cuz in Pennsylvania - Vonda Patterson Minner.
Ed was a loyal colleague for our nearly 10 years together at Humboldt State University. He did indeed have a heart of gold, and I'm sorry to hear that he had such a short time to enjoy his retirement. My sympathy and best wishes to the family.
One of the geocaching team of Joe and Ed is missing in action. Saturday morning breakfasts, catching up on with each other weekly activities and what been doing with our kids, jobs, projects; hiding or hunting down a new geocache or 2. Setting a record 10 caches finds in one day record between here Blue Lake and Junction City. Life doesn't get much better than this except maybe with a Peeps covered office.
Sorry to hear the sad news of your father's passing. May you find strength in the love of family and in the warm embrace of friends. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.... .Julie Michels (Shoreham,NY)
My condolences to you and your family, I am sorry for your loss. My families prayers and well wishes are with you.
Joyce - So sorry to hear about the loss of your Father. All my prayers and support are with you and your family.
Ed was a generous and kind co-worker and friend. I served on the Executive Board of AFSCME with Ed and worked with him at Social Services and also at HSU. I will miss his sense of humor and his kind spirit. My thoughts are with his family and close friends who I know will miss him alot.
To Aunt Ann, Joyce Ann, Robert
Sorry hear about Uncle Ed he was a very nice guy little time I had a chance to get to know my uncle. He was someone that could make you laugh and still be seious. I have learned few things from chatting on facebook as well. Not much to some but to me it is because we had so little time get to know one another. I want you all to know you're in my prayers love you... Its Joyce Smith daughter
I am so sorry to learn of father's passing. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
My love will be with all of you at this time you are facing,Ed you were the best friend a sister could ask for and I am going to miss our phone talks! love you, Joyce and family
Ed was very good friend to me and my son David. We loved his gentle manner, his belly busting laugh when he got going, and his intense dislike of politicos and elected oficials who were not genuine. He loved being part of politics and many a brochure, flyer, mail, or GOTV piece had his fingerprints on it - often done in the wee hours of the morning. Many, many, candidates in Humboldt County had his help in running, and winning, seats. He was a Democrat's democrat and a union guy to the core. Many a time he was there to help us- whether trying to decide on a computer, take a walk, or just be a friend. He has been taken much too soon for us and we will miss him dearly. Debbie Israel and David Parker
Dear Ann & Family - I am so sorry to learn of Ed's passing. In the years I worked with him I learned from him, depended on him and loved his spirited heart of gold. He was a very tender man. I hope you all find peace in your fond memories of him.
