Not sure what to say?

Hey I was thinking of you guys and how I used to babysit Nikki and Lance. I was curious as to how you all were doing so I googled your names. I am sorry about Ed. I remember him fondly. He was a great neighbor and I have many good memories of the time I was your across the street neighbor.

Ed was a great guy to work with. I will miss his smiling face and keen sense of humor. Ed and I worked together for a number of years at NCR until I retired in 1996.

Ed had a good aqttitude about the situation he was in and the future he was facing. (He was my best ally at the FIC meetings, always defending the underdog). He will be sorely missed!

I worked with Fast Eddie in Van Nuys from 1963-1967 as techs on Van Nuys one and only 315 system.
We shared many a brewski together at the cocktail lounge across the street from the old GM plant on Van Nuys Blvd!
Lots of laughs once you figured out his "twisted" sense of humour.
Last saw him in July 2012 at another NCR employees memorial service; fond
memories were re-enforced.

It was a privilege to know Ed as both a neighbor in Escondido and a colleague at NCR-RB. Our kids went to the same schools. We drank coffee together often at Truly Yours Restaurant until I retired in 1992 and moved back to NY State. I'm sorry I missed the chance to say goodbye to him, but he will remain a part of my good memories.

So sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I knew him very well, liked him very much.Loved his gruffy, outspoken conversations.

I had the genuine pleasure of becoming friends with Ed thru our many, many weekend rounds of golf together at Escondido Country Club. We had a good group of guys mainly because Ed was one of the nicest people I met there. Ed will be missed but not forgotten. My sincere condolences to the entire family, and all who knew and will miss him.

I shared a cube at work with Ed for many years after I transferred into Engineering at NCR and I worked with Ed on and off for many years after that. He was a good mentor and friend to me and I will always appreciate those times I spent with him. My sincere condolences go out to Ed's family.

I worked with Ed and played golf with him every weekend for many years. We shared many a laugh and good times. He will be missed and never forgotten. Sincere condolences to Sue and the family.
