My deepest sympathy to Ed's family I know he was a loving husband, father grandfather and friend. Ed and I became friends during our coaching days in Little League and were teammates on the Logan Lovlies. I truly enjoyed being around Ed you really get to know a guy when you play ball together in a dress. My God comfort you all during this time of grief. Ed will be missed

It's been a long since I knew Ed. When we were you we were in the same band together. He was without question an upstanding individual. God Bless Linda and the family. RIP Eddie!
