Cheryl I am so sorry to hear of Eds passing we were good friends at delphi . I know he will be missed .John
May God bless your family during this most dificult time.
I stated working with him at General Electric in July of last year. In short time I knew Ed, he made a strong impression on me. I found he was a very wise, kind hearted, and passionate man. My heart is with his wife and family in this time of sorrow. Ed was a great man and I will miss him very much.
Thank you Cheryl for letting the Lapeer Class of 1964 know of Ed's passing. Our Prayers are with you and your family.
Cheryl, Ed was a really good friend with a great big heart. We only had a year together but in that time I came to love his wit, smile, and positive autitude. I enjoyed going with him to the homeless camp on Wednesday nights. His desire to help others was obvious. He told me that he was not allowed to wear the Hawaiian shirt as we were a bunch of rebels at GE. However, the resistance was short lived and Ed joined the rebel band of Hawaiian shirt wearers. :) Ed spoke of you often. He worried over you and wanted the best for you. I know where Ed is right now as we spoke of God and heaven often. I pray that you and your family know God in this way so that you see each other again! I hope that didn't come off badly but I care for you and Ed. He spoke of your children and which ones were doing well and which ones he was worried about. I miss Ed and I am very sorry for your loss. In Christ, Dennis
god bless you uncle ed you will always be in our hearts and will be missed by many
