9 Condolences for Edward A. “Ed” Danisavich, Jr.

  • Beth,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. I had the honor and pleasure to work with him at the ETC for many years. He was my mentor and I sure did learn allot from him. He will be missed.

  • To all Ed’s family: We are so sorry to hear of our long time Aetna friend’s passing. He was a fixture at Aetna’s Bingo night for many years and knew all there was to know about it. We enjoyed talking orchids and he always brought us snips of his Lilly of the Valley when they bloomed and smelled so sweet. Of course he often brought his favorite twisty cane too…I loved that cane. The Bingo ladies loved him and will miss him. I will too.
