My sincere condolences to Ed's family from his pal, and fellow Marine, Jack Sullivan. For many years, Ed was a daily visitor to my place of business and I always looked forward to his visits. Even as I sadly witnessed his failing health, I looked forward to when he and Steve would show up for our weekly chats. He will be sadly missed. A true "gentleman." Semper Fi pal!

My condolences to the family. We were neighbors and I always looked out for him before he moved. When I would call, he wouldn’t remember me very much. I lost touch with him. I had not known of his passing until now because I looked him up. We truly missed him and his wife. They were the first ones to welcome us to the neighborhood. They both were wonderful people. Beautiful inside and out.
