Memories Timeline


  1. It's truly difficult to put into words the kind of man Ed was, not many fellas in this world that can measure up to his class and values he showed. We absolutely loved having you as a neighbor and my kids adored you. Often times would say Grandpa Ed waved at us or Joyce waved. I'm sorry I never made it to breakfast with you we just spoke of it Tuesday. Rest easy friend and know we will continue to keep an on Joyce for you, it's been an absolute honor knowing you and calling you a friend.

  2. Joyce and family, you have our deepest sympathy on the loss of Ed! I wish I could have gotten to know him better, but distance sometimes prevents that. But it’s obvious the love you all have for him and I’m sure he will be greatly missed.
    Praying for all of you!
    Jim and Karen

  4. Joyce and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Ed was such a kind man. He always stopped and talked to me and my family when we were out in the front yard on Warren St. I know he'll be missed by many. Keeping you in my prayers. Tracy Benson
