I met Edgar through a mutual friend at a New Year's Eve party where we both were trying to play guitars to country music. He was instrumental in helping me get the job with Ernst & Ernst and the rest is history. I loved this funny gentleman. I'll miss his wacky comments on my Facebook.

Edgar interviewed me in 1980....when I joined E & E. He kept me sane dealing with the demands of a fast paced CPA firm.
Edgar and I have stayed in touch all these years. He was a great mentor and friend.

I knew Edgar from our days at Ernst and Whinney. He was always such a gentleman. I always admired his composure under pressure. He was certainly a stabilizing force in the office. He had great character. I know you will miss him.
So sorry for your loss.
