Dear Johnson Family,

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Ed. I met him many years ago while working in the Plats & Surveys Division. He would stop by and visit Medric and a few others. Then we met up again a few years later at HDD sponsored project. I was the EM for the project. He was great to work with, always responsive, friendly, courteous and professional. He will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you, family. God Bless,
~~~Allison Grooms, OPPE--EPLD

Like others, I had the pleasure to work with Ed at the SHA in the Highway Design Division. There was a lot of comradery in the division and Ed's pleasant nature made him one of the reasons for that atmosphere. Even after I left the division and eventually went to work in the district and then the Secretary's office, Ed was one of the folks I looked forward to catching up with whenever I was in the building.

Hard to imagine Ed was one of only 14 persons in the whole Maryland Department of Transportation of almost 9,000 with 50 or more years of service. So he is a very special public servant in that select group.

My thoughts are with his family in your difficult days ahead. Hopefully, you take some consolation that he was truly proud of his family and that you were a source of strength.

I worked with Ed at Maryland State Highway Administration for 13 years. Ed was one of the nicest people I've ever met - slow to anger, soft spoken, kind, considerate, and always a gentleman. He spoke frequently, and very fondly, of his family. It was obvious to me he loved them all very much and was very devoted to them. One of the words that come to my mind when I think about Ed is steadfast. He was always on an even keel, quick with a smile (and sometimes with a joke) and pretty predictable, which I feel is a good thing! Ed was just a really, really great guy, and I'm saddened that I didn't get to say goodbye to him. I look forward to seeing him on the other side and reminiscing about our time together at work. Rest easy, friend, and enjoy your well-earned peace with the Lord.

Ed thank you so much for the love, support, and memories created over the last 21 years. But most of all thank you for my wife. I’ll never forget when Jaime and I came up for a visit, and even though we lived together, you directed us to sleep in other rooms. You were an awesome mentor and Pop Pop to my children and I will be forever thankful for that, especially when I was away doing Army stuff. It was my honor to know you and I will keep my promise’s to you.

The greatest Pop Pop there ever was! He was truly a second father to me, especially after my dad passed away 6 years ago. He ALWAYS put his family first and never hesitated if someone needed his help. I will miss his music and laughter and stories. Audrey and Wyatt will always remember his kind heart and love he gave them unconditionally. He helped raise my babies and for that I could never repay him. It was a privilege to know him and to love him. Love to you all through this tragedy❤️❤️

I was so very sad to hear of Ed's passing. Ed was a super nice guy who loved his family. We shared stories about our Grandchildren, the Ravens and life in general. My heart goes out to the family at this very difficult time.

Ed is a wonderful man and I enjoyed working with him and appreciated him as a friend. I will miss him dearly. My heart goes out to all his family and friends.

Since I was a friend of his son Todd in school, I've known Ed since I was young, and it was a pleasant surprise, later on, to find myself as his coworker - and fellow carpool member. I spent many mornings and afternoons talking with him on the daily drive, and it's a painful thought knowing that I won't get to do it again.

To Linda, Todd and Jamie, and all the rest of his family, my condolences and my sympathies.
