To Ed's Family:
Please accept our deepest condolences and our appreciation for sharing Ed with his AB family. Ed was always good for a laugh at the most opportune times or best of all, being able to laugh at himself. It is rare nowadays that you find someone who was as loyal a friend as Ed was from the moment you met him. He is at peace now, and while I grieve his loss, I know that his legacy lives on in those who were fortunate enough to call him and friend, a shipmate, and a brother. Rest in Peace, Ed.

I served with Ed when I was a new sailor in the fleet back in 99-03 on board the Harry S.Truman. I remember him being the kindest first class petty officer I met.

My deepest condolences to the entire family and all of his close friends.

RIP my brother !!
