Sorry for your loss. Whenever I called he was always there to help. If not I'd leave a message and he'd return my call. What a wonderful thoughtful man. He will be greatly missed.

I had the absolute pleasure of knowing Ed from our days at North Allegheny High School (Class of 1970) until his recent passing. We reconnected just recently, and I will forever remember his positive outlook, charity, and ability to always have a kind and positive word towards anyone in any situation. He was truly inspirational to me. Rest in peace my friend.

It is with shock and sadness that I read of the passing of Attorney Ehrhardt, a brilliant man. He appeared in proceedings before me countless times. Whether representing his employer or claimants, he was a fierce competitor: always prepared and able to offer the best legal backing one could hope to receive. Outside of the hearing setting, he was a warm, caring man. He leaves a legacy and shall be sorely missed by those who knew him. I hope his family will be comforted and blessed by the mark he left on the world. He left us too soon.

It was a pleasure to have cared for Ed over these past many years and to have been his colleague for many years before that. He was a special person and we always looked forward to seeing each other and catching up. There are naturally a few patients in one's practice that are particularly engaging and Ed was one of those. He will be missed, but my grief is eased by the knowledge that he led such a productive life. It was a privilege to have known him and I regret that I will not be able to attend his funeral as I will be out of town.
