Janice and family, Ron, Vickie and family
I am so saddened to hear about Ed’s passing. We will always remember you hosting the club’s annual pool party, esp. the time the guys put ice cubes on “ sleeping” Vernon. I warned them that he was not asleep and he he bear hugged someone into the pool!
Vernon and I always met Ed when he so graciously met us with the fresh oysters.
May your family and memories surround you during this difficult time. You are all in my prayers.

My condolences to the family.
I was Ed's cousin. My father was George , Earls brother. Ed and I shared some good childhood memories. Regretfully I lost touch with the whole Baltimore side of the family. I have a good start on the Fletcher family tree on Ancestry if anyone wants to see if they can add to it. Again, my condolences. Tom (Tippy)

I have soooo many memories of Ed. Where do I start. And he would do anything for you. He would go out to catch crabs, steam them and give them away. He will certainly be missed on Brooks Creek. My heartfelt sympathy for you Janice and your whole family. Love you!

Ed was the conductor on my morning MARC train into Washington DC for many years. He and his crew were very friendly and made the long commute into DC enjoyable. My prayers go out to his family that they may find comfort in God at this time of sadness.
