I only knew Ed for a few years but it was motorcycling that brought us into contact. Ed loved to ride, and at 70 could run 0ff and leave most riders I know half his age. Ride far and ride fast Ed, you will be missed.

One of those really good guys: friendly and fun to be with. I always enjoyed riding and camping with Ed. My first trip to TWO was with Ed. He advised me that the owner, Frank Cheek, could be a serious grump and not to get in a conversation with him - just say, "Yes, Frank." At that first "no choice" breakfast, the menu was gravy and biscuits and that was it - take it or leave it. I'm not a gravy on biscuit man and Ed overheard me asking Frank if I could substitute jelly for the gravy. Ed immediately hollered, "Richard, you are now out on very thin ice." We will all miss him yet he will continue to live on in our memories.

I am so sorry to hear that Ed has passed on. I know it was a sad time when he had to give up riding. Hat's off to the consummate rider! That VFR was was always Spotless! Reminds me of Richard Bach's book "Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah." With sympathy to Dian and family.
