I met Ed Hall almost 40 years ago. Being in the outboard industry, we got to know each other very well. Ed was very respected by the corporate people and Johnson/Evinrude as well as at the local dealer network. Ed’s knowledge and abilities were topped by no one, even factory engineers. Upon his retirement, there was a huge void left. As my youngest brother said upon hearing of Ed’s passing,”he was a brilliant man that I regret not listening to and learning more from”. I got to know the personal side of Ed. Having a very difficult father, Ed mentored me in dealing with my father. We fell out of touch over the years but his void still lasts in my life. To Billie and Mark, I know he is hiking better more peaceful trails. May he Rest In Peace.

Ed was a hero who exemplified courage with a unique blend of humility. He was not afraid to say what he thought. Ed was a like able soul that was a loyal friend. To say he was well-read is an understatement. My condolences to Billie and Mark. ❤️ James
