Ed and I were classmates in Waverly, NY. Since both our names started with "H" we were often seated next to each other. He was everyone's friend and often their confidante---a great "buddy"!
Bob,Kim and family,
We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers, along with our deepest sympathy go out to all if you.

To the Hathaway boys:
Back in the early years on Huffer Road, I remember the backyard fun coming to a halt one summer evening after Bob and I had a good, fair race to the patio door. Now technically, I guess Bob won, with the stitches to prove it. Just an old broken storm door, but to a 4 or 5-year-old, it felt like the world was ending, as Bob and your Mom headed off to the Emergency Room, leaving me to face "Mr. Hathaway"!
But your Dad was just as kind, calm, and understanding as could be as he walked me home, gently convincing me that Bob would be fine and that it was nobody's fault.
I'm happy to share the memories, while saddened at your loss.
Dear Bob,Chuck,and Stephen, I am very saddened by the loss of your Dad. As kids we never wanted to get on his bad side.Oh the lectures..lol I remember going go visit him a few times when he lived on Dodge St. What a cool guy as hou got to know him as an adult. He will always be a part of Huffer Rd. And our childhood. Keep your heads up guys. You all turned out prettu damn good in my book.

Dear Bob, Chuck and Stephen so very sorry to hear about your Dad. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
was a very good freind & card player
got me back into fishing
Larry and I became friends with your Dad while working at Delco. He "fixed" machines that Larry broke. My friend Jean Corey and I were "off line" machine operators and he would, at times, relieve us for about an hour so he could build parts for the model shop. He would say to us "take a break girl's". We were always happy to see
"Mr. Ed". Other times we would be on Co. breaks and we would just sit and talk about everything & anything, solving the problems of GM and the World haha...he was a Book of Knowledge! I believe his brain was like a sponge, nothing he couldn't talk about. He was a always calm,lay-back. When it came to talking Family...he talked proudly of his three sons Robert,Charles, Stephen and of his Grandchildren. He talked of the good cook your Mom was and the great Italian meals.
We have played cards together for over 20 years. First in a Euchre League then switched to Fri. night Texas Hold' Em at our house. No matter the weather we knew he would be there..unless he was out of town. I believe April 26th was our last game. He will remain in our thoughts and prayers and missed emminsely! May he have a game going in heaven above.
Our Deepest Sympathy
He was a wonderful man. We were very fortunate to have known him. He is missed already.
Loved hearing your stories when you visited us at the Country Buffet. Will miss you. (Tim and Karen)
This is Tony T. Tran, I was the dinemate with Ed at Old Country Buffet for the last 5 years... He was a good friend whenever in needs. Ex: When I had a accident, he spent almost 4 days with me to find a car... He took me to the Casino and other places to show me about Rochester... Whoever has problems, Ed always offers the help one time he even offers his denture for a guy who just lost his teeth HA HA He has been the man with wide range of knowledge and we will miss him a lot
