Our deepest sympathies to Tom and to everyone else in the Davis family. Ed was, quite simply, one of my favorite people, and I know we will all miss him deeply.

A bright light and gentle soul has left the earth.

Kind, smart and dryly funny, Ed was a good friend who never lost the ability to surprise me with his sly wit and his low-key delivery. I still find it hard to believe that I'll never see him again, and my heart goes out to his husband,his mother and the rest of his family. His passing diminishes the world.

I am very sorry to hear of Eds sudden passing. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
I hope the good memories will guide you through this difficult time.

My deepest condolences to his husband, his mother and the rest of his family. Ed and I met through John Jay Pre-Law Institute and I was struck within a few seconds how caring he was. He was an amazing person who gave back to the community every way he could and who was there for me when the Director of the Pre-Law Institute passed. May he rest in peace, may his family find comfort in the memories and amazing legacy he has left in the community. Thank you Ed for everything you did.

I met Ed about 13 years ago through my partner Kathleen. Although I did not spend much time with him to get to know him well, it only took 5 minutes in his presence to know he was a rare and truly special person. My deepest condolences to Tom and Ed's family.

Though I hadn't seen Ed for many years, I always knew he was there and that I'd be in touch. My world has shrunk knowing he's no longer in it. My dearest love to Tom.

I am so sorry to learn of the loss of Ed and extend deepest condolences to his husband, mother and family, and all the friends, colleagues and people that he touched during his remarkable life. He was so kind, generous, brilliant and funny. I am grateful to have met him when he was Chair of the New York City Bar Copyright Committee ~20 years ago and, thanks to his efforts, to have stayed in contact over the years. May peace be with him and all those who love him.

I met Ed back in college, when we used to sing together in the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum in the 1980s. I looked forward to seeing his open smile and catching up with him at every rehearsal. He has been a wonderful friend ever since. I was so thrilled to see him find happiness with his partner Tom. The positive influence he had on everyone around him, and in the world in his actions, cannot be overstated. He was and will continue to be an inspiration to try to do the right thing as best you can. He was also really, really fun to spend time with, had a great sense of humor, was a fantastic listener, and kept surprising me with hidden talents (Mandarin, who knew?). I'm honored to have had Ed as a friend. My heart hurts. Love to Tom.

I first met Ed over 30 years ago in London, and it was clear to me immediately how extraordinary he was, so intelligent and erudite, generous and funny, a lovely human being. To say he will be missed is an understatement. To Tom and all the family, to everyone who knew and loved Ed, my heartfelt condolences. Ed, I will never forget you.
