I was grateful to get to know Ed in the process of researching my biography of Steve Goodman. We corresponded, talked by phone and met for a memorable dinner in D.C. along the Potomac in 2001, and the key moments when he crossed paths with Goodman at the Twelfth of Never club south of Chicago are documented in the book (along with a photo of Ed taken in 1965 -- attached). He knew how to spin a good story, and I deeply appreciate his generosity and heart.

Although we did not know each other well in high school, we did manage to get to know each other better when we were both back in the DC area in the late 70's. Nothing like good food and a few drinks to bring people together. I will always be thankful for the reunions Ed set up and the memories of seeing him and all of our classmates again.

Take care Ed. Please hold me a spot up there if St Peter will let you.

Rest in peace Ed, and know the rest of your high school classmates are thinking fondly of you. Just talked to you last month about the future, and now that is in the past. So sorry for your loss.

Rest well, Ed. The silencing of your voice is a major loss for the Class of 1960. Those group treks to the printer to put the Reveiller together are one of my strongest memories of RTHS.

I really enjoyed getting to know Ed after we graduated from Rich Township. He made all our class reunions possible. I never missed any in Park Forest where I would drive around to old haunts, some of which survived only in our memories. I had a great time, on one occasion, with Ed in Washington, D.C. at a meeting of he National Press Club. We were on opposite sides of the political spectrum , but never let that interfere with our fond high school memories.

Ed and I were best friends, working on the Reveiller sports page and shooting baskets in his driveway. He and I broadcast Rich High Rocket basketball games on the high school station, WRHS. Our parents probably were our prime audience.

Ed was the glue that held our Rich High School class together. He chronicled our lives for our classmates, but more importantly, he made sure that our lives continued to connect over the 58 years since our graduation. We all will miss him.

Uncle Eddie as we knew him was a wonderful and fun loving person and of life long CUB fan! I had the pleasure of being with Eddie and watched as our beloved CUBBIES won their World Series! Jack and I will miss our Friday lunches followed by our movies with Edddie. Meeting him through our friend and his cousin Fred Hass enriched our lives with his wonderful life long memories of his vast life! Eddie was the person who we meet throughout our lives that have really enriched our lives because of us getting to know him! We will miss him dearly!
