I met Ed early in my Amoco career. He was always very helpful, and willing to help out. Ed was the type of guy, that you liked him, the very first time you met him. Ed and Jimmy Lee were very close friends. They were more like brothers, than friends. Ed was in my maint., crew, when He retired. He will be missed, by all who knew him. Ed RIP, my friend!
