To many he was Ed, Edmond, or "Chinky", but to me he was simply "Dad". He was someone I always looked up to and learned from. He would do anything he could to help someone out. He was someone that always had great advice to give on life's dos and don'ts. He was someone that exposed me to all of my hobbies from fishing to hunting, even thought he couldn't stand wakening up early. He did all of that for me. He was the biggest influence in my life and I'm proud to say that. I just could not have asked for a better father.

He was my oldest best friend, when we were neighbors on Sherwood Forest Dr/ Carrollton. We had great times together and I thought of his mom as a second mother to me. I will miss him. Condolences to Fay, Chrissy, Paul, Kim and all of the family. He was a wonderful friend.
