I am terribly sorry for your loss. Nothing I can say at this time will help relieve your pain, but please know that I worked with Ed at the college and we remained friends after I left the college. He was a good confidante, always had a smile on his face and always seemed to look at the bright side of things. I know, in reality, he was much more complex than that. I always used to tease him about his scooter. We had a few good laughs about that. Every time he would see me, he would speak, unlike some who would scuttle off in the other direction to avoid someone, Ed always made sure you saw him and spoke. He will be greatly missed.

Ed was a good friend and a reliable co-worker. I could never thank him enough for his help with the Maysville campus. You could always count on Ed to speak his mind, and to keep the mood light. I will miss him! You are all in our prayers. Sorry to not be able to attend Ed's funeral but we are out of town on a family vacation.

The members of the USS New Jersey Veterans Association are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of our shipmate, Ed. We join with so many others who knew Ed in offering our deepest sympathy on his passing. Although it is of little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that in his passing, you can celebrate the end of a wonderfully productive life.
The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much wealth, or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched and the sorrow they leave behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on his loss is any indication, and it most certainly is, you can proudly and confidently say that Ed’s life was indeed, a life well-lived.
May you find peace and comfort in knowing that his loss is felt by all who knew and loved him. May he have “Fair Winds and Following Seas” on his journey to the Lord.
Bob Dingman,
President of the USS New Jersey Veterans and former Electricians Mate who served with Ed in E Division.

I am so sorry to hear about Ed my mom worked with him for years at the college so I had the pleasure of getting to know him as well. He and my mom would often discuss the Bible together and many times they talked about the hope found at John 5:28,29 which says that "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." Jehovah God never intended for us to have to suffer and die yet what a nice hope he gives us in that we will soon be able to see our loved ones again. Ed was always so happy and joyful and he will be greatly missed.
