Dear Bonnie and family,
I worked with Ed many years ago at Buell Envirotech/GE Environmental Systems, Inc. in Lebanon. Ed was a true professional, subject matter expert in pollution control systems and an all around nice guy. He was highly respected and well liked by his peers and associates throughout his long tenure with the company. I have many fond memories of him and will keep those thoughts in remembrance of him. My heartfelt sympathy and condolences to you and the family. May he rest in peace.
