Ed was a very special friend for many years of the late Ed Sullivan and me. Ed was a friend of our family for over 50 years and we enjoyed many hours of fun and games (bowling, camping etc.) I am so glad we were able to see Ed when we were in Ithaca. God Bless all who knew and loved Ed.

Our lives have been enriched by having pop with us. He so enjoyed the family times together. Everyone was honey. He appreciated every little thing done for him. He fought the good fight. His passing is our loss and Heavens gain. We will cherish the memories.

I believe that everybody has that "Cool Uncle" when they were growing up ; Uncle Ed was mine. I remember him coming to our house many, many times when we were kids (usually will a box of donuts). I also remember going to his and Aunt Lou's house with Mom & Dad to watch the Ithaca fireworks.
When Bonnie & I were first married, Uncle Ed and Aunt Ginny took us in for a summer when we needed a place to stay.Ed was a very talented and loving person. He was loved by all that had the privilege to know him. We will all miss him.
Thank you Bob & Crystal for being such wonderful children to him!

One of the best things about working at the Ithaca Journal was meeting and working with so many great people and certainly Eddie was one of these great people. My thoughts and prayers go out to you Bobby and your family during this difficult time.
