Ed was a wonderful person to work with. From the first day I walked into Dr. Lewis Libby School as Principal, to my last day, he was supportive, easy to talk to, and great to work with. I enjoyed conversations about motorcycles and riding, a love we both shared. Sonya and I send our condolences to Judy and his family, and the Dr. Lewis Libby staff and students. God bless you Ed.
