Ed personified servant leadership and our surgical outcomes are the better for it. I am grateful for his leadership example and the privilege of calling him friend....

I never met Ed, but many teleconferences with STS. As I was new to STS, Ed was extremely helpful. I know we had a connection after realizing we both had come from Texas. Ed was very knowledgeable and yet down to earth. My heart felt condolences to Maribeth and Eddie.

Sad to see the unfortunate loss of your partner. I will pray that you and your son are well.

I only knew Ed for a short period of time, however you can sense when you are around someone who is great. Ed radiated greatness. He was a kind, and always went out of his way to say hello. He is mised.

Hands down, the best hugger in the world! Just such a gracious, elegant man.

Ed was indeed a special man. I learned much from him, not only from his vision and experience, but by the way he carried himself and interacted with others. His enthusiasm was inspirational and I will always hold him in the highest regard. I am privileged to think of him as my friend. My sincerest sympathy to Maribeth and Eddie for this loss. He will be missed.

I met Dr. Fonner in Topeka and knew him for over 14 years. He was a fine gentleman, very intelligent, who wrote Governor Graves' Public Health Improvement Plan for the state of KS. He also loved to run road races and participate in triathlons. I am so sorry that he had to leave us so soon. Alice Purdy, National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution.

Fonner family, we have lost a sincere family friend who can never be replaced. Ed will live on forever in our thoughts!

50 years is a long time to know someone, but still not long enough. I was hoping for another 10 or 20. A piece of me is gone with Ed, to accompany him on that next journey, I hope.
We were probably seated together alphabetically in high school, both aliens, but I could hide behind the tall guy and be outside the spotlight of the sports star. Unlikely friends. Who else will know those times with me? And with that knowing, understand the scope of time itself?
Well, as he did say, we must go on.
All my best to Maribeth & Eddie. Grief is a work that must be done. I wish for you strength to carry on and to connect with the thread of joy within the grieving.
