On Stage for The Father's Club presentation of South Pacific. Ed never sought the spotlight but always wanted to his nest in any part he played. When I had to write the obituary for my dad a few years back one thought came to the front of my mind. "He was a good man." That seemed so simple but said so much. Ed had a positive impact on more people than he realized simply because "He was a good man" too. Be at peace buddy.
