Ed was one of the Sweetest most kind people in the Barnard Family. I would calm his role "the greeter" he always had a huge welcoming smile and loving hug for me when I saw him I was extremely sad to hear of his passing. I always liked the family reunions he held at his place they were fun and my, kids always had a great time and of course their was great food and I know they will never be the same without Ed.

Please accept my condolences for your loss. I know how much he was loved and will be greatly missed.

Deepest Sympathy,

I worked with Ed at the Glad Plant, particularly in the 1980's. I was a production supervisor and later a maintenance supervisor. I appreciated Ed's expertise and experience, and enjoyed working with him. He was an asset to the plant both for his skill and as a person. I'm sorry to hear that we have lost him. My prayers are with his family.

His family's love for each other and others reflects his heart and principles. May he be greeted warmly in the arms of his heavenly father, God.

My family's condolencense to you all,
