Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
Ed was a wonderful, but at times, an arduous friend! There were times he drove me crazy, always worrying about something, but usually I could steer him on to seeing the more laughable side of things. He had a wonderful sense of humor, you just had to know how to dig it out! And that said, Joan and I loved him dearly. Ed accomplished much in his life and was an extremely devoted teacher. We had the privilege of meeting some of his students, and the respect and gratitude they felt towards him was more than evident. And we can't forget his beloved G.M.C. Classic Motor home, and all the camp-outs we shared together with him and Muriel. Ed faced many health struggles near the end of his life, and we are grateful he is now at peace. Muriel knows our feelings, and I believe Ed knew we'd be there for her, as are many other friends and neighbors. Rest easy our dear friend, we will miss you greatly. - Posted by: Tim & Joan Connell (Dear Friend) on: Sep 14, 2019
