So sorry to read of Ed's passing. Bill Ross, his local NFL officiating buddy passed away on February 20, 2019.
Just recently found newspaper clipping where the two of them were named as officials of a Big Brothers All-Star football game on June 10th of I don't know what year!at Arrowhead Stadium...The article said they were a top-notch crew of officials.
Thinking of Ed and his family at this time.
