Lois and Family, It was with a heavy heart that I learned of Eddie's passing. Joe McCrone, Eddie and I spent many hours together and we perpetrated a lot of adventures. Those were some great times. I miss those days and I miss my old friend. I will always remember him and know that my early days were made that much better for having had Eddie in my life.He was and always will an important part of my life story. Regards, Donnie

The last I saw Ed was about 50 years ago. But I have very fond memories of our high school years together. We had a lot of hard workers in high school and Ed was one of them. I respected him a great deal. We often worked at the Annex on school projects. I am sorry for this loss. It sounds like he still had a great personality. Dave Swarts, Class of 1963.
