Ed you will be missed and not forgot. I feel honored to have been part of your life. You always had something to share with us all from your knowledge to your jokes. One of the momories that sticks on my mind is how cool it was that no matter where we would go to eat there was always someone who knew you. Carol and family I am sorry for our loss of such a great man. I will miss him.
For years Ed and I went to breakfast at Bob's Big Boy before work. We always enjoyed spending time together. He always looked out for his parents, and it is clear Ed carried on the tradition of placing importance on family after we lost contact. Ed, you will be missed.

I remember the first words Ed ever spoke to me and knowing then that he had changed my life forever. What I did not know at that time was just how great an impact he would eventually have on both myself and my family. His love for my mom, my sister and myself and the relationships he developed and so dearly treasured with my boys, was steadfast and heartfelt, no matter what. His ability to find the best in everyone and his willingness to make his opinions known on the matter should be a lesson to all of us. I love that he appreciated the simplest things in life. I love how joyous he was when he came home from an opera. I love that aside from something involving a tool or an oven, he knew just about EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYTHING. I love that he learned to use Google. I love that he could explain anyone's shortcomings so that they didn't appear as a shortcoming at all. I love that he marched to his own beat and stayed true to him self always. I love the hilarious one-liners he would spout out on occasion and when least expected. Most of all, I love him and all that he was. My life is fuller for having known him. Thank you for picking us Ed, I will miss you every day.
He was a great husband to my mom, a great friend to everyone he met, and an especially great dad. I will miss you and love you always.
