I knew Ed, MaryAnn his wife is my best friend’s sister. We spent time with them during the summer in Wildwood. It was amazing how much he loved MaryAnn and her entire family. It was so clear in everything he did for them. He shared his whole heart and he used to make us laugh. I will always remember him as a generous , loving husband, and wonderful person.

As a long time member of the Lucky Strike Sportsman’s Club I first met Ed when he joined the club more than ten years ago. I had many enjoyable hunts with Ed and his dogs, first Zoe and then Colt. I will always remember Ed as a good man, a good friend and a great dedicated club member. My sincere condolences to his family. May God give you some Peace and serenity during this difficult time. Thank you Ed for all the great memories and may you rest in peace. Don Nicolai.
