I first met Edward when he was 13, had a thin, cheesy "mustache" that he refused to shave (mostly because he was proud he could grow it at 13) and long hair. Even then, you could see what kind of man he would grow into. At, 13, he was incredibly hard working, willing to help, and goal driven whether the project was installing a car stereo in the Oldsmobile or making an ice rink in the yard. It was no surprise to hear of his success, entrepreneurial spirit.
My heart sank, eyes misted and a lump developed in my throat that I couldn't get rid of when I heard of this. Even the most beautiful words I could express would be humbled by the sorrow and sadness his family must feel. Therefore, I will let someone else express them. This, from a book that I received from Edward as a gift (one of his favorite books at the time).

“Death ends a life, not a relationship.”

Thinking of the Chan family, esp ecially his wife & adorable kids. Edward was my boss for a short time & he left a lasting impression. One of the most humble & genuine people I've ever met.

I'm so sorry to hear of Edward's passing. I found out today while visiting his business. I repair the Opex machines they have there to process mail. He was a great guy, had a positive attitude, was a great guy to talk to about anything and everything. My condolences to his family and friends.
