As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
I worked with your mom for many years and recognized the name. Losing one parent is tough, no words for the second. Know your parents represented your family we'll in life. In their memory do the same. Warmest regards, pat Kendall
Just as Jesus was resurrected so may your parents. So look to the future with hope as assurance that "God cannot lie"(titus2:1) There will be a resurrection of the righteous and unrighteous.
Ed and Dorothy were our next door neighbors and good friends. They were wonderful people. They will be missed.
Mr. & Mrs Begley were wonderful people and I was privileged to grow up next to them. Hard to find two nicer people. My deepest sympathies
Ed was my first officer at old station #2
I was fortunate to spend a year with Him.
He was the greatest and will be missed.
Dear Dorthy and family, Ed was my lt. as a young fireman at station 1. He was a truly fine man and great company officer.He taught me a great deal for which I was beholding for my entire career in the SFFD. My condolences to the entire family, The Bullet will be missed. Frank Cercos
Linda & Sandra....All of us that worked with your Dad down @ Station #1 share our loss with you & your family....I was the other Lieutenant assigned to Engine #1 on Tour 7, always following your dad as he was going off shift....The crew change was always seamless & he made my job easy as he never left any loose ends....His favorite duty when responding to the all-to-many burning over-loaded commercial debris boxes that Eng. #1 covered throughout the Tenderloin & South of Market was to initiate the "Many hands make light work" call for Truck #1 to lighten our work load & would always be rubbing his hands together with a big grin on his face as the Truck pulled up....Your dad work 'em all, from the imfamous debris boxs to the 5-Alarm blaze at the Hallem St. fire....Simply put, your dad was "AN OFFICER & A GENTLEMAN"....TENNN-HUT....A salute & a THANK YOU TO HIM FOR HIS SERVICE TO COUNTRY & THE CITY....He is home again with your mom....God speed, Ed....

Linda & Sandra: There was only one "Bullet" Begley.....Your dad was a quiet, but very comical person. His passion for Stanford football opened him up for continual torture from his fellow workers. He commuted with me from San Rafael to Station One for about 4 years. He will be miss by all of us.....
my sympathy to the family. Ed was moral and upstanding member of the fire dept. it was my pleasure to serve with such a fine man
I believe my father worked with Ed , at The S.P. after the War . His name was Walter Posey . I retired from the SFFD in 2009 .
To Linda and Sandra: I would like to give my condolences to the both of you!! I worked with your Dad at "Old" 2 Engine….what a delight he was to be around. Ed was very much a giver and I remember having a great time with him. He will always be in my memories!! God Bless!!
Dorthy and Daughters:
Ed was the first engine company officer I ever was assigned to at one of the busiest engines cos. in SF.
Ed was a wonderful person and an excellent officer, I had not known of his Marine Corps involvement in the Iwo Jima campaign for Ed never talked about it. Ed was one of the people I looked up to for his having stepped forward to put it all on the line, I I saw him do a number of times in my association with him.
A man of character who stepped forward and a man who is admired!
