He brought a smile to everyone’s face and it was such a pleasure working with him.

  • A great man that will be missed. He opened the door for me in the IT world

  • I knew Ed for many years. He always welcomed me into his home. His home was always filled with laughter and love. I can’t remember a time that I did not see him with his granddaughter and his soulmate. It’s truly unfortunate that he is gone and they are left to mourn this great man. My prayers are with them in this time. RIP my friend.

  • Sorry for taking this long to post. Honestly didn’t even know i could do this. At one point in my life nothing made sense. I couldnt have cared less if it all ended well or horribly. My step grandfather eddy changed that. He would always help out when he could and it left more of an impression than i thought it did. My only regret is that i didnt do enough to return the favor. After hearing so many of his stories in our car rides up to wilmington in the morning i realised just how great he was to everyone and me, even though i knew it wouldn’t last forever. Im glad he’s at peace with god now. Even after his passing its impossible to forget such a man. I love you step grandad. Hopefully I’ll get to see you in the next life, and share you some of my stories.
