One of my favorite home inspectors of all time! Taught me a lot when i started out as a kid in realestate 30 years ago. Super knowledgeable, great hunting and racing conversations, and definitely a no nonsense guy! You'll be missed. Condolences to your entire family.

Hey there my Jersey Sisco family, just wanted to say how sorry we are to learn of Edwards passing. We take comfort knowing he’s with his bro’s now, stalking deer, hitting a few balls on the greens, or just hanging out at the Dead River Buck Camp , knocking back a few whiskies. We’ll always remember that sly smile Ed would have while the guys were telling their Maine hunting stories, like he knew the real story behind the story. You’d always get a good laugh outta him, when poking fun at Norm’s version. We remember those fabulous clam bakes and wonderful Sparta parties. Memories we’ll cherish and stories we’ll pass down. Love to all...Chip and Brenda
