Ed graduated from Sunnyslope High School in 1989 and settled from 1994 - 2010 in Washington DC. Ed was a person who beat his own drum, literally as a drummer, but also as a fierce and sometimes cantankerous individualist, overflowing with creativity and wit. Ed spent 10 years as a fearless bicycle messenger in Washington DC then managed one of the oldest bars in DC, before moving to help care for his elderly Grandfather. Memorial services will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2013, 7pm, at Hansen's Mortuary in Phoenix.
