I ran with Ed and his wife with Uwchlan Ambulance in late 1970’s. Ed was a calm, easy going guy and coaxed me into joining the Lionville Fire Company also from 1978 to 1980. I was honored he and his wife could join us in our wedding vows and celebration at Minquas Fire and Ambulance Company.  I will always remember him. RIP my Brother.

I knew Ed from Strasburg Fire Company, for 12-13 yrs. before I left the fire service.  He also introduced me to the Masonic brotherhood.  Always a great sense of service.  Always a Good Man, in the Best definition of that phrase.  He had a great sense of humor, and we shared a lot of jokes and laughs together over the years.  Now, RIP, Brother
