Ed paid special attention to the Ashland High School golf programs and was always a source of encouragement for the kids. He followed us at tournaments all over the state and would typically suggest we stop for ice cream on the way home so he could pick up the tab. I affectionally referred to him as my "special assistant to the head coach." He will be dearly missed by me and all the golfers at AHS.

Always enjoyed teaching with Ed at Johnny Appleseed. After many years of lost contact, we found each other on Facebook, and shared memories of former times and plenty of laughs.
We also found another former colleague living in North Carolina, Doug Wilson.
Ed was always highly involved and concerned with the students he taught, and when he returned to Ashland after retirement, was a very involved supporter of Ashland High and Ashland University athletes.
Will miss Ed, as I am sure his relatives will have less levity in their lives.

I was a classmate of Ed's at Ashland College back in the '60s. We were all "Commuters" hanging out between classes in the Student Union lounge, mostly sitting around laughing at the things Ed would say--he was very entertaining! One day in1965, the conversation was about what fun it would be to go to Ft. Lauderdale for Spring Break! Suddenly Ed piped up, "Sounds great-- I'll drive!" and so he did, Ed and three girls-- 21 hrs. each way! I don't remember a single thing about the trip other than laughing the whole way down and the whole way back! What a great guy he was and I'll bet he was a wonderful teacher...so sorry to hear of his passing. I offer my sincerest condolences to his family, he was special, for sure.

My deepest sympathies to the family. I had Mr Fulton as a teacher at Jonny Appleseed Jr. High as was one of my favorite teachers and always willing to listen to me when I was struggling with a lesson or with girls. He will be missed.
