I am very sorry to hear of Eds passing. We
were friends in High School and during our
College years. Oftentimes we would get together for a competitive tennis match and to
share some good laughs. Our careers were both
with State Street Corporation and we each spent 35 years with the company both retiring together.
Ed was a great friend and a great guy!
I want to express my condolences to the family.

Karen,

So sorry for your loss of such a wonderful husband and such a great guy. He will allows be remembered as a perfect gentleman who treated everyone with kindness and upmost respect - qualities that are hard to find these days. Ed had such a positive impact on my career at State Street and was always such a great team builder and motivator. I especially enjoyed traveling with him to Los Angeles on business many times. He certainly knew the nice hotels and educated me about quality wines early in my career! He also knew well how to keep State Street clients happy and was always looking out for career opportunities for his team.
But above all, Ed always knew what was truly important to him and that was his love and commitment to you Karen and his family. I will always remember him for that - RIP Ed.

My deepest condolences,
Wayne Owen

To family...
Ed was one of the great leaders at State Street Bank and was able to lead while being a gentleman and respectful to all. I learned a lot observing his style and manner and know others did as well.
May his family keep his memories in their hearts forever.
Rest In Peace
