Ed was one of the first persons I met when I joined SNET. He was a pleasure to know from those first days on the job to meeting weekly for coffee the last few years. Remember playing golf with Ed at Hubbard Heights G.C.. He made one of the most most incredible shots I ever witnessed; an eagle 2 on the 7th hole par 4. 150 yds over the water, ball hit the green, kicked sideways and into the cup. Going to miss you Ed.

When Ed started at SNET, he rode with me for a bit, I was told to "train" him! At that time I had a year or two in the company! As it turned out, Ed "trained" me and we had some great fun. I did however show Ed where the best breakfast place was! RIP

Fox had the best sense of humor. We worked together when i first started with SNET. I remember when we worked late, the boys used to call him to tell him that they were still hungry and they were looking at his dinner plate in the kitchen. The next day he complained that they ate most of his food. I also remember his love for Cupcake the dog. I have lasting memories of his laughter and his ability to say the funniest things just at the right time. I really enjoyed his friendship and his company. My condolences to Pam, Amy, Joe and Ed lll.

Dear Fox family. My condolences for your loss. I was so sorry to hear about Eddie. We worked together at SNET for years. I was always happy to have him stop by the CO with a Dunkin Donuts Coffee, and share some amusing stories about work or life or the subject of the day. When I moved out west we kept in touch through Facebook and some phone calls, we commiserated about having cancer and traded war stories about treatment. Mostly we exchanged barbs and joked. Ed had a great sense of humor. I will miss that.
Peace be with all of you.
