All my best to all of Ed's family.
We worked together for many years, he with USG and I with Letica now Berry.
He was a great man and I thought of him many times over the last few years and how he would handle things.
We shared Referee stories as he loved Basketball and Softball Like me.
I will miss him and so will many of those who knew him from the Letica side.
All my best,
Joe Calvano
