He took great pride in his work and had many co workers that became great friends. Ed had a passion for fishing, photographing wildlife, gardening, and hunting. He was an animal lover and was immensely proud of his Powerline bred pit bulls that he loved and raised. They were his babies, and he took great care in breeding and loving them. Ed was also an avid music lover and had a great collection of playlists that he loved to share with family and friends. Ed also had a contagious energy for tattoos.

He is lovingly remembered by his girlfriend Shan Patterson and her two children, Chandler, and Reese all of Georgia; his brother, Eric and wife, Dara and his two nephews Nicholas and Maxwell all of Florida, many Aunts and Uncles, cousins, and a host of long-time friends.

Ed and I would have date night every Friday night. We would choose a different restaurant every time. Our conversations would be about our past, present and future. He was the only one I truly felt I could be myself around. I miss those date nights and I miss Ed so so much.

I have known ed since school and was thrilled when I heard he was moving in the same neighborhood. We had a close relationship. He was born 23 and I 24. Both in Connecticut. We worked at the same Publix. I asked Ed to be my best man for marriage of toni and I. He was a great friend . I was jealous he lived his life with no restrictions he did it right . I saw Ed memorial day 2020 . We went fishing close to his home . I told him it has been too long and that I loved him like a brother. We hugged and teared up. I'm thankful to call Ed one of my dear friends.

I have known Ed for over 16 years. He was a wonderful person who loved nature and all it offers. He also loved my daughter, Shan and her children, Chandler and Reese. He was definitely part of our family. I have spent so many fun Christmases, Thanksgivings, and vacations with Ed. He was a great snowboarder and we went on many ski trips. He was a great teacher to Chandler and Reese. He was also a buddy to Colin, Sarah and Fin. I am so sad that we weren't able to see Ed in his last days. He would have wanted Shan by his side. Ed you will be missed so much. May you be having a good gab with Kevin, wherever you both may be. We all loved you so much.

I cant believe you're gone. Was so looking forward to meeting up in Utah. So many things forgotten come sweeping back into my memory like a rush of strong wind. I remember that old white truck and the green box, Going fishing and catching my first fish. I remember not wanting to carry that 4 1/2 lb bass home cause it was hurting my hand and you made me. I remember coming home and finding you cooking some unknown thing refusing to tell me what it was until I tried it. Rattlesnake. It was delicious! Wrestling and putting my butt thru the drywall and thinking were dead! Laughing uncontrollably at dinner and getting sent to bed, laughing the whole time. You and eric may have been my brothers by marriage but to me you were and always will be my brothers by love. Time and miles drifted us apart but I have always thought often of you both. You are free now and probably smiling and laughing non stop. Till we meet again....

Ed and Eric lived across the street from us growing up! I have a lot of great memories of Ed such as late night fishing at the Boynton inlet, driving around in his white Chevy pickup with tons of glass Mountain Dew bottles rolling around in the bed, wrestling on the green box, riding in the mustang, fishing and camping by the lakes in the neighborhood, seeing Alabama in concert, seeing Metallica in concert. The list goes on and on! Ed Kashmanian you lived life to the fullest and will be missed but never forgotten my friend!
