Ed gathered the facts for and enjoyed being at the side of community leaders as they battled red-lining and community disinvestment. We enjoyed Ed's generous spirit and great good humor. Gloria, Jill, Sarah, and Family, we offer our deepest sympathy in your loss. Roger and Pat Harless

Ed was one of the really good guys. He was both a wonderful colleague at the JCRC in the 70s and a good friend. He cared so much about the NW neighborhood, inter group relations and wildlife . He has died much too young . I know his children must be proud of him.May his memory be for a blessing
