Ed was born on February 16, 1935, in Rich Hill, Mo., to Oscar and Hester Quick. He was born with a strong will, quiet spirit and a determination to make a difference in the world. At 17 years old, he enlisted in the Navy and fought honorably in Korea. After serving his country he came back to the Kansas City area and became a Kansas City Missouri Firefighter. He always said, "when it was too tough for others, it was just right for station 22." Ed so loved being a firefighter. During that time he also started a small throw paper called Quick Midwest Postal with offices in Kansas City, Independence, Wichita and Springfield. In 1975, as the underdog, he won the election and became a Kansas City City Councilman representing the 1st District. In 1985 he ran for and successfully became a Missouri State Senator. Ed rose through the ranks to become the majority leader, minority leader and the honorable position of President ProTem of the Missouri State Senate. He retired from the Senate in 2005. In 2006 he became Clay County's Presiding Commissioner until 2010. In 2010 he became a part-time lobbyist for Jackson County. Ed was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, a brother and his daughter, Teri. Survivors include his wife, Jane, children, Brent (Shari) Ellison, Randy Quick, Richard (Sylvia) Quick, Mark (Laurie) Quick, Rebecca Johnston. Grandchildren Nathan, Marley, Ethan, Gabriella, Adrianne, Leslie, Tiffany, Katie, Jessica, Amanda and the youngest Ziva and nine great grandchildren. His family will ever be filled with his love, his support, his stability and his dancing, intense blue eyes. Ed's wife, Jane, is forever grateful to Dr. Michael Loggan, Dr. William Bednar and NKC Hospital for their extraordinary and compassionate medical care. Ed Quick led a remarkable life filled with joy, sorrow, laughter and lots of love. He came into this world wanting to make a difference and has left this world having done just that.
