Our deepest sympathies go out to Ed's family and our deepest gratitude for those family members and friends who have made memorial gifts to the Northshore Schools Foundation.
His legacy for life long learning will live on in the lives of our students.
In loving memory,
Ed and I were high school classmates and opponents on the soccer pitch. He was a tremendous opponent in soccer and a better friend in high school. I pray for his family in this time of deep sorrow. I am still struggling with his passing, although we had not maintained contact over the years. Ed always had something funny to say in any situation and I am sure it would not be different now. I will remember him with a smile, especially when I am playing/coaching soccer.
To Ed's sister Vida, I will never forget you attending my father's funeral with Ken 30 years ago. He passed away on the same day, November 12th. He was also 49. The memory of your kind gesture has stayed with me all of these years. I was so sorry to hear of your brother's passing. He sounded like an amazing man. I also live in the Northwest and it sounds like he took full advantage of everything it has to offer. My deepest sympathy to you and Irene and the rest of your family. May memories of Ed and the love of family and friends bring you comfort and peace.
My deepest sympathies go out to Mr. and Mrs. Praitis, Vida, and her sisters. I was so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. May memories of him comfort you all during this very difficult time.
Eddy, my dear sweet nephew, the very best of the very best; we will miss you so very much.
May his exemplary life help us overcome our grief.
Ed was my cousin's husband. We spent quality time with him and the whole family last summer. He was nothing but loving and caring, about his kids, wife, and the world around him. He was the epitome of the open spaces of Nebraska and the wholesome Pacific Northwest: down-to-earth, authentic, funny, unpretentious – and not to mention smart. He clearly enjoyed working hard – at his paid job at Microsoft and in the fun stuff he did. His kids inherited those traits from both parents, and that will be his legacy.
So long, Ed, and our deepest sympathies and love to Janine, Erik, and Karl,
Ian and Maria, Phillip and Catherine Whan Tong
Janine,Erik and Karl, Uncle Bert and his family in Canada and the Cayman Islands send you their deepest sympathies on Ed's passing. Please accept our condolences.
My name is Bob Naujokaitis and I grew up with Ed at both St Anthony Church and at Bryan High. Ed and I ran for Sophomore Class Pres. and Vice Pres. together on a "Lithuanian Ticket." Ed was a wonderful friend and will truly be missed. I had just visited with his mother a few weeks ago and asked her to tell Ed hello from me. I hope she did. I lost a good friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I'm so sorry for the entire Praitis family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers....may God give you strength in this difficult time.

Ed was a fellow Microsoftie and cyclist and will be missed. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Deepest Sympathy to the entire Praitis family. I have very fond memories growing up with Ed and his sisters. Great family and great times. Gone way too soon. Rest in peace Ed.
Ed was a teammate of mine, playing youth soccer together from grade school until we graduated together from high school. Although I lost touch with Ed after high school, I will always cherish the times we shared as teammates as a very special part of my youth. I pray for God's healing hand for Ed's family at this difficult time and hope that the fond memories of family and friends will comfort you in the coming days and months.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to Dana and Algis Praitis and the entire family in such a traggic loss of your son. We share your grief and our prayers are with you.
Edmund and Virgilia Nelsas
Our hearts are heavy; Ed was taken years too soon and the loss is immeasurable. For 16 years, we've witnessed from next door what a great man, husband and father Ed was. He was kind, helpful, funny, patient and excelled in all athletic endeavors. He gave all those traits to his wonderful boys who are both very dear to our family. We will share with them and Janine our many memories of Ed as time goes on.
