May the Lord bless you all and support you in your loss. I was fortunate to work with Ed on the Youth Clinic at Secor for many years. He seemed always to be in our presence even after the move to Kansas. Please be aware that his manner and dedication has affected many through the years. Royden Jones - September 4

May the peace of the Lord be with you. I met Ed at the Secor Sportsman Club and became instant friends. I will always have good memories of him on Monday nights at the club. It was a sad time for me when he moved away. My sympathies to his family. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

So very sorry to hear about Ed passing away, remember him well although lost touch as our lives took different paths. Ed was a wonderful man, son, and father. I am sure he will be missed by many family members and friends. May God bless you all.

I am so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I remember seeing him running by our house every day in the old neighborhood. I had no idea of his military service as an Army Ranger and thank him for his service. I know there are no words to heal your hurt but know that you have my sympathy and prayers at this most sorrowful time. JoEtta Hinrichsen
