My thoughts are with Lynne,Sue,Johnny,Michael & Ed. Uncle Ed was more than an Uncle. I have great memories as a child spending time with a Aunt Carol & him. When I was a teen they asked me to be Lynne’s godmother. I was so pleased. I visited until they moved to Florida. I again spent good times visiting in will be missed “Papa Smurf❤️“

Uncle Ed was more of a big brother than an uncle to us growing up. Another hole in our hearts.

We sort of "Adopted" Ed after his wife, Carol passed. He truly became family to us as well as to our children. We spent almost every afternoon together ...for the "happy hour" that we had at our home from 5:00 PM every day to whenever. We would have get-togethers at our home, and Ed was always with us. He was a wonderful neighbor, man, confidant, and friend. We know he is in a better place now, he is with his Carol, no more pain, no more sorrow... he is finally where he wants to be. God has called him home. We will miss him...always.

My uncle Eddie was a man who loved his family and was proud of his family
He loved to have a good time and I’m glad there were years before my mom passed that we got a chance to spend some Christmas holidays together in Florida
May your soul Rest In Peace my uncle
