Ed, As your older brother, we were very different, but close most of our lives. You read Shakespeare, I read history. You programmed computers, I drove trucks. I am sorry, in the end, our lives got so far apart, but it happens. Even though we are all different souls, you, Mom and Dad are all together now somewhere, wherever that may be. Rest in peace, brother, I will never forget you.

My brother, Edward Nilges, was a passionate and intellectual person. However, in the end, he will be most remembered for his memoirs detailing his
fight with cancer. He fought for life and gave it his best. His blog and Facebook detailing his daily battle really show his passion in the face of
great pain. I told him once that I always thought he would outlive all of us. Although I am wrong, I know he will live forever in the hearts of many.
Love, Mary, Allen & Jeffrey Smith

"When a man dies, it is like a library burned." I Don't remember who said this, but it certainly applies to Ed, who was the most erudite, well read person I have ever met.

I first met him in 1973 when we were both working in IT at Northwestern University. I instantly knew that this guy was going to be a friend for life - and he was.

After thrashing around in a number of jobs, Ed found his true niche in Hong Kong as a teacher. He was superb. A font of knowledge always worn lightly, infused with a practical, down to earth approach.

Eddie, you will long be remembered. RIP.
