Ed was such a wonderful guy. He had a fantastic sense of humor. I could always count on him for a funny remark. He helped rig my shell and always encouraged all of us to get out on the water. He will be missed.

So sorry to hear of Ed's death. He was a valued friend and colleague from my early days at Presbyterian. One of the highlights of my time there was the opportunity to attend his wedding. He had an enviable clinical career and an enviable athletic career. I send my condolences and best wishes to Lois and the entire family.
