Memories Timeline


  1. We will and do miss him dearly. He was a wonderful man. He was funny and loving person to work with. I will miss his saying “I Know That’s Right”. and of course his warm smile. I feel very fortunate to have known him for the 5 years we worked together. I will miss him dearly.

  2. Ed was our gruff teddy bear. One tough guy, but a sensitive soul. He was unique. It was an honor to work with him, and to call him friend.

  3. ED….first impression grumpy ole coot…. spend some time with him and you learn there’s a hugh heart, tons of laughter and sometimes almost warm and fuzzy. Will miss you greatly.

  4. You fought until the end my friend. We will truly miss you. We will never be able to go into Ace and not look for you! Had good times in the sheriffs academy too! You were a truly good man.

  5. From all of us at the salon, we will truly miss you Ed harassing us! From always telling me”your late” to “where are all my tootsie lollipops?” You fought a courageous battle . May your soul rest in peace. You will always have a special place in our hearts. Sheri Garcia & The staff @ A New U salon

  6. I had the privilege of knowing and working with Ed the past 8 years. You are not forgotten nor will you ever be. I can look back with fond memories of the good times we had. RIP my friend.

  7. I’m so thankful to have known you. You opened the gym (premier fitness) for us every morning and u were so dedicated! The last thing you told me when me and my son Gage came to see you in the hospital was that you were glad I was working for a vacation co now. That I should enjoy life and that had you known you would be sitting where you were that day you would have enjoyed your retirement and taken Betty on some great trips instead if going back to work. Well a lot of us wouldn’t have gotten to know you if you hadn’t so I’m thankful to have gotten so close to you. Had fun in our citizens sheriffs academy class! We will miss you so much! Will see you again soon one day. So sorry to the family and Betty. I pray for you all! Ed is such a great man! Felt like he was a grandpa to me.


  9. so sorry for your loss.Ed seemed to be a great father and husband. Thinking of you all at this time. David and Vickie Hajovsky

  10. A relentless friend; always giving of a smile, a hug and a helping hand. I will miss you dearly and always remember you with fond regard. Ed, you touched more lives than you could ever imagine. Four Candles-Author Unknown The first candle represents our grief. The pain of losing you is intense. It reminds us of the depth of our love for you. This second candle represents our courage. To confront our sorrow. To comfort each other. To change our lives. This third candle we light in your memory. For the times we laughed. The times we cried. The times we were angry with each other. The silly things you did. The caring and joy you gave us. This fourth candle we light for our love for you. We light this candle that your light will always shine. As we share this time of remembrance with your family and friends. We cherish the special place in our hearts that will always be reserved for you. We thank you for the gift your living brought to each of us. We love you. We remember you.

  11. I will not forget going to Ace and having Ed help me. From that first meeting he always said…”here comes trouble”! I guess I am a wannabe DIYer with my own way of doing things. Ed would advise me and jokingly fuss at me if I was on the wrong track, but in a way that I knew he truly cared about how my project turned out. My husband and I asked for him every time. He had a way of connecting with everyone he met. Thank God I got to know him, and I thank God I saw him again recently on his short return to work…heaven has a great go-to-guy now and we will truly miss him. Our prayers are with the family, and thanks for sharing your wonderful husband, dad (and all he is to you) with us, the people of your community.

  12. Awe Mr.Ed, you will surely be missed by many. I will always remember your warm hugs, laughter and especially the twinkle in your eyes. Ed you find a bowling alley and when I get there I would be very proud to be on your team. Betty my heart aches for you and the girls. My arms are around you and my thoughts and prayers are with you always. Love You, Kathy

  13. I had the pleasure of having you in my life in many forms over the last twenty years and I am a better man and father because of it. As I prepared to marry your daughter my own father lost his battle with cancer and you took over not just as my father-in-law, but as my father. Over the years I learned that through your big and gruff exterior was a heart of gold, always willing to help anyway you could. We shared many common interests, and through those I learned what a great man you are. Although your time with us is through, we will talk to you each night as we lay our boys down to sleep and see you again at some point. Also, as promised, we will take care of anything that mom needs to help her along the way. Rest easy Ed. We love you very much and will miss you deeply. Your passing will leave a hole that can only be filled with memories of the great man that we had in our lives, but will live forever in our hearts.

  14. I know Ed is happy sitting in heaven watching over us. He was a nice, friendly and generous man. He will be missed by all of us.

  15. Betty and family I am so sorry for your loss!! I had the pleasure of meeting Ed way back when in the Premier Fitness days. He always had a smile and a hug for me whenever I saw him. I will miss him! What a great guy he was. Ed, I know you are finally at peace and one day we will all be together again 🙂 Hugs my friend!! xoxo Pebs

  16. Betty, I am sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. Though we were separated by miles and spoke infrequently he was and will always be a good friend.

  17. I feel so blessed to have known Ed, even if it was for a short time. A man of strong convection and values, I always admired his work ethic and I learned from him. When I first met Ed I found that even though he had a tough exterior there was an ol’ softy inside and the more I worked with him, the more this became apparant. I called him (affectionately) Grumpy Ed and he called me “Red”. I’m positive he is up in Heaven and his new nickname is “Happy Ed”. What a great man!

  18. We did not have the pleasure of knowing Ed for a long time. Although our friendship was brief, he will be greatly missed by ourselves and all who were fortunate enough to know him.

  19. Ed, the long hard struggle is over, and you handled it beautifully. We are going to miss the twinkle in your eyes and your bright smile

  20. I was truly sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. My husband David worked for Ed at SWBell -Forbes Rd in the 80s. Ed was a good guy and he and David are probably butting heads in heaven now. My prayers are with his family

  21. Its so sad my dad passed away & even though we never had a relationship due to his part i always had love for him. i never knew he passed & im his biological daughter.. love u dad may u rest in peace
