Ed was a joy to know. His sense of humor, his kindness, his positive attitude all made him a pleasure to deal with. We'll forever be thankful for his handyman work through CHAI, and even more appreciative of the friendship we developed with him. A life well-lived... and we're the better for knowing him.

I used to play fiddle with Ed's musical group. He was always so happy and eager to share any music or fiddling knowledge with me. He and Robyn were such a great couple. I am deeply saddened by this loss. May Ed's soul have an aliya and may he pray for us from above. May we have the redemption already!!!

The Beatles sang, "Only the good die young..." and so we lose Ed, young, upright, a doer and a fixer, kind, happy to help, a helper in work and in life. He will be greatly missed by this neighbor as well as a host of others. My deep condolences, Robyn.

Whenever I am on my way back home from a long bike ride, and I am riding up Park Heights, I can see Ed, so clearly, just blow right past me like I was standing still. Even when he is not there, even now, when he is gone, I will still see him and will try and catch him. Rest in Peace Ed. You were a good man, taken too soon. Teach those angels how to ride a bike, you were the best rider and teacher around.
