We were so saddened to hear of Ed's passing. He was just an all around great guy. A loyal friend, he was fun and kind and could sing like nobody's business. He was a local treasure who will be greatly missed. Our deepest sympathy. May he rest in peace.

Eddie was my high school classmate. He had such a good time at our class reunion last year. I have a video of him singing with the band. He called me several times after the reunion, reminding me to call him when our class plans a get together. God bless Eddie. So sad. Rest in peace, Dear Classmate. My sympathy to his family.
