I was very saddened to hear of the loss of Mr. Crowe. I have many very fond memories of my Uncle Ed from my youth: fun times at the house, watching hockey, and many more. Uncle Ed always seemed to have a positive attitude about life, regardless of any current circumstance; a hearty laugh and great sense of humor. He will be missed.

I met Ed only recently, but it was a pleasure every time we had the chance to speak to each other. What I'll remember about him the most was the kindness that he showed people. My thoughts go out to his family and friends that he loved so much.

Over 20 years ago a mutual friend told me I had to meet this great guy "you will love him" It was Eddie and I did, We became great friends, golfing buddies ("I will treasure our foursomes forever")and when Ed got me back to church we went together every Sat. Over time I met most of the family and Eddie was so proud as he should have been. Most of all I will remember his great sense of humor and the once a week breakfast at Christy's where we laughed for a solid hour. He was truly a wonderful man and will be missed by everyone.

I was so saddened to hear of Ed’s passing. He was one of my father’s( Bob DiCesare’s ) lifelong best friends. I grew up listening to stories about Dad, Eddie, Vic and the rest of the guys. Dad had been so concerned for Ed these past few years and often wondered how he was doing. My Dad passed two months ago and I really hope the two of them are back to paling around on the other side.

I loved you your entire life and will now miss you the rest of mine.
You were one in a million. Always made me feel like I was # 1. But that was your true gift to make everyone you encountered feel so special.
You have left a true legacy that Sharon, Ed, Dan and Jimmy will carry on.
Rest easy Uncle Ed.

When I first began working with Ed Crowe in 1999, I had no idea the impact he would have upon me. The kindest, most gentle man I have ever and may ever embrace the privilege of knowing. Knowing him, inspired me to be a better man, a better person, a better husband to my wife and a better father to my sons. Whether or not he ever knew, it was through him I learned love and kindness can be easily expressed. I will never forget our conversations, his amazing humor, his keen smile nor the wisdom he imparted toward me. Not a day passes when faced with life’s dilemmas I don’t ask myself how he may approach them and that is the path I choose. My condolences reach out to his family for their tremendous loss.
