I too, only just found out today, after wishing him a Happy Birthday. Rick Francolini informed me. We worked together, for several years, at Barnes Distribution. I am truly sorry to have learned this. My condolences to the family.

I am shocked and saddened to have just realized this news. I worked with Ed for 4 years at Barnes Distribution where he and I became fast friends. Just realizing that I hadn't heard from him in quite a while I tried to look him up and learned of this tragic news. I'm sorry to all that knew and loved him.

Michelle I was so sorry to hear Ed had passed. He was such a great guy. Deepest sympathy to you and your family. May the lord grant you peace.

Ed will be missed. Worked with Ed at ASTEC for many years. Was a blessing to know him and he was always the most kind. Never rushed our conversations and genuinely cared about his work and co-workers. A stand up guy that clearly was a blessing all those that knew him. Wish I would have been able to know him longer. Ed will be sincerely missed and our hearts are heavy. Let us keep Ed's family in our thoughts and prayers. Rest easy Ed...rest easy.
