Oh Ed,you are certainly going to be missed by so many .I enjoyed talking to this gentleman any time I ran into him, whether it was at Hospice,the grocery store,or at the high school working out in the gym. My sincere condolences to your family.May GOD wrap you in his loving arms and give you peace as he has Ed.

very kind and nice classmate.

I will always fondly remember our days at Irving. I was just looking at one of the pictures earlier today that we took at a church function. We were so young, in our early teens, you are so handsome, you with your red hair. You were always one of my favorite people. Eddie, you will be so missed by so many people. My sincere condolences to your family.

Ed I am going to miss you. Your smile always warmed my heart. I know you are with the angels now but your spirit will always be at Oak Chapel.

My family greatly appreciated the time Ed spent with my dad in his last days in his fight with Alzheimer’s

Ed you are leaving a gaping hole in Oak Chapel and in my heart. RIP dear friend, you will be missed!

Clearview was great especially with your sweet face. Always a gentleman . Always witty. Your wonderful family will rest now that you are peacefully in your "mansion just over the hillside" Miss you

Ed,
You were truly a friend! I really enjoyed you as my classmate. You were funny, and kind. Just think! now you are free!
Praise God! No worries or cares.
RIP

Sooo sorry to learn of Ed's passing. We had been friends for years. Fortunately we e-mailed back and forth the last few days of his life. I know all of us in the same class at Clearview High School will all miss him. Thanks sooo much to Connie who
always keeps us informed as to what is going on with our classmates.
