Nov. 9, 1923 - Sept. 6, 2020 The South Bay lost one of its most enduring and endearing figures over the weekend. Ed Slattery passed away just a couple months short of his 97th birthday. Ed moved to South Redondo in 1955, and lived in an apartment at Avenue C and The Esplanade for more than 50 years. A gifted athlete, he taught youth boxing at the Torrance YMCA well into his mid-90s. He was a familiar sight in the Riviera Village. Ed is survived by his 3 adult children, his ex-wife, 2 daughters-in-law, and 2 young adult grandchildren. He was a kind and most unpretentious man with a heart of gold.

Coach Ed, as we had known him for years, was a loving, patient, and caring person. He even came out of his home to cheer Village Runner 4th of July 5K race when our kids ran. We will forever keep him in our memories. We will miss him terribly.

Ed always had a smile and a kind word. He was full of stories and always eager to share. He was a wonderful man and I am pleased to have met him.
