Originally from Mansfield, Massachusetts he entered the U.S. Navy where he served his country aboard the USS America (CSN 66). When he honorably discharged from the Navy in California, he attended college and worked as a chef at Club 33 located inside Disneyland. Club 33 is where he met the love of his life Denise. They raised two wonderful children Todd and Jennifer.

In 1969, Ed and Denise moved to Las Vegas where he opened the International Casino Hotel which later became the Hilton Hotel. He worked there as the Executive Chef for almost 20yrs. He regularly cooked for Elvis Presley and other famous celebrities. After leaving the Hilton, Ed became the Executive Vice President and COO for Elsinore Corporation and the Four Queens. He also spent 6yrs in Atlantic City operating the Atlantis Casino and Hotel. In 1994, Ed became the VP and General Manager of the new Fiesta Casino/Hotel where he stayed until the design of the future Palms Casino was complete. After a short retirement, he then went to work for Ameristar Casino in Council Bluffs, Iowa as the Senior VP and General Manager. In 2005, Ed signed on with Venture Catalysts Inc., as their Executive VP of the Gaming Group. His next adventure was presented in 2007 when he became the President and COO of Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, PA where he oversaw the construction and opening of the property. In 2011, Ed moved to San Diego and worked as the VP of Food and Beverage for Barona Casino and Resort. Ed finally retired in 2019 after 50yrs in the gaming industry. Ed was an original board member of the Fremont Street Experience and board member of Nevada Resort Association and Nevada Hotel/Motel Association.

Ed was regarded as a visionary in the casino industry and always invested in and influenced those that he worked with. Always leaving places better than he found them. He believed that his employees were the most important asset to any company that he worked for. When Ed wasn’t working, he enjoyed camping, woodworking, golf and spending time on Lake Mead. He was active for many years in the Boy Scouts of America and numerous other civic organizations. Most importantly he was the patriarch of his family, and everyone looked to him for love, guidance and stability.

You were the best man I have ever known. You taught me more than anyone else about life. You taught me to be caring, courteous, loving, generous and most of all you taught me to be a good person who works hard to gain success. Both personally and professionally. You were a natural leader and man of great character and charisma. You had the ability to influence the masses and everyone you ever worked around or worked for knew that. When a child looks for a hero they looked towards the famous people in life. I looked towards you. You are my hero and always will be. You will always be famous to me. I love you Dad. I miss you.

There’s no one like UE. My Uncle Ed was an amazing man. From as long as I can remember he was an influence on my life. Every encounter was inspiring, motivating, encouraging, memorable. He was very loving and fun to be around. His laugh and smile will be with me forever. There was always something special about his presence. He made anything seem possible. He was the greatest example of courage, strength and determination. And his way of relating to and influencing all around him was incredible. I wish everyone had the chance to know him. I will share your stories forever. I love you uncle Ed. There’s no one like you

I am so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. There are so many fond memories of our family gatherings with him, Joanne and Anthony. Back in the late 80's or early 90's, I was working in Vegas with an event manager at the Four Queens. One afternoon, while she was having lunch, I decided to stop by to say "hello" and was speechless to see her boss, Ed, lunching with her!!! It was unbeknownst to me that Ed was employed there, and for him, that I was coordinating an event at his hotel! You can only imagine the look on our faces when we saw each other! His smile and laughter could light up a room. The last time I saw Ed and his mom was back in 2002 at a small family gathering here in LA. He was such a wonderful man and will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

I had the honor of attending Mansfield High School and playing football with Ed (Fuzzy) for a couple of years. I remember Ed fondly. I last communicated with Ed a few years ago following his retirement and he was in good spirits and health. I enjoyed my last conversation with an old friend and am saddened at his passing. Truly a great guy, classmate and teammate. He will be missed.

I met Ed & Denise when my family and I moved to Las Vegas in 1990 ; we fall in love with both of them as we soon recognize how special they were . Ed and I created the Food& Beverage Director Association of Las Vegas to help hospitality students receive scholarships, it is during those meetings that I realize the power of Ed leadership with compassion . Although he moved out of town our friendship and respect for each other never changed , his special smile will always stay with me and his wisdom will still guide me for years to come
RIP my friend and give a big hug to Denise form all our family

Ed Fasulo was a great man. I had the pleasure of knowing Ed for several years. Ed helped me manage the Fiesta in the mid-90s;
I have many memories of Ed and his dedication to his job and, more importantly, his wonderful family. He was such a positive person and a gentleman. We had so many laughs together, and he had a significant influence on me.

I recall numerous times that Ed made challenging times, not as hard. He was someone that I had great trust in; I never needed to worry about the Fiesta; he always had the business in his best interest. I will miss Ed; what a great man!

Ed was such a great man in every way. A tremendous leader, an exceptional, proud father to Jen and Todd, a pioneer in the casino industry, a true friend for 35 years and someone who will forever be loved and admired by everyone who knew him.

Ed's daughter Jen worked here with us at Valley View Casino in San Diego for many years and just like Ed, Jen was always the first to offer her help to any team member or any guest at anytime. Jen moved back to Las Vegas a few years ago to be with Todd and Ed who had recently retired to be with his family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jen, Todd and their entire family and many friends.

With our deepest condolences.
