Ed helped me, personally, as much as anybody in my life. He encouraged me to get my degree and was kind of the big brother I never had. RIP .

Phil, our thoughts and prayers are with you and all the McCormick family at the loss of your brother. I will always have fond memories of all the years we were lucky enough to play softball together. He was quite the character with a unique sense of humor. There were a few times that we roomed together for out of town tournaments that I’ll never forget. The Erie softball community will miss him. May he Rest In Peace.
