I worked with Ed for many years. Always a rock solid, steady, and really good guy. A blessing to have known him. May God strengthen, comfort and bless family and friends during this difficult time.

When I was a teenager, my brother, Ed bought this old sedan that looked like the ones from the James Cagney movies in the 1940s. I called it his gangster car and used to play cops and robbers in it. It stayed parked beside my mother's house for years and even though it didn't have an engine, the city made him get a license plate for it. I wondered why he held onto that car for so long and didn't ever fix it up or drive it. It was still in his yard last time I visited his house and that was about 20 years later, still a shell car, but interesting. Then I found some old pictures of my dad, my sister, both my brothers and me in front of our old house with my dad's motorcycle on the sidewalk. There in the driveway, was a big brown sedan car that looked like it could have been that old car when it was new and mobile. I wondered if he wanted it to remember a happy time in his childhood. His newer car was just as memorable. It was a bright, yellow Barracuda. Carol probably remembers it because I think they were dating when he drove it. I remember his love for cars and how he bought some of them just to tinker with. He also studied architecture, and his creativity and genius came to light in the work he did remodeling the home he and Carol were building for their family. He built all kinds of out buildings around his property so that he had his own village. Some of them had turrets and reminded me of little castles. He was the smartest person I have ever known and he taught me so much just by giving me the opportunity to watch how he lived. His family have some beautiful homes to look forward to in heaven when they join him someday because of everything in his life, he loved his wife and family the most.
