I will always remember when I was feeling down and I would tell my father lets call uncle Eddie. He would talk to me and make me realize that my situation isnt really that bad. He was such a good caring guy. He was my friend that I could call anytime. Also he was my facebook buddy. Hunting fishing or politics we talked about it all the time. I will really miss you. You were a good man and not just my uncle but you were also my good friend. Rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy,
Ed was like a big brother to me ,
Our breakfast meetings at the Galleria where we met regularly ( Charley, Dennis, Ed Ambrose, Bob Egan, Doug Gilbert, Destry Brown, Ron Jason,Drew Andry ) and those that attended our holiday gatherings at the Milanase are a fond memory,
Ed spent countless hours with me troubleshooting difficult situations at our customer locations and always gave me good advice on a personal as well as a proffessional level. I will miss him dearly.
