Uncle Ed always had a smile on his face and funny stories to tell. I know he will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Cousin Dorothea, know that we are thinking about you at this time. I especially remember Eddie (Tiger) as my high school baseball coach when I was in 9th grade. Still enjoy reading his Belfort stories!

Dorothea and family, At this time of, distancing I won't come to calling hours. It would be wonderful to sit and visit with you and your family but not at this time. However, I want you to know you are all in my thoughts. Eddie had a long and most wonderful loving family, a very fortunate man. Love & Hugs Patsy

Dorothy and Family,
I can't express how sorry I am for your loss. It's impossible for me to express in writing, the impact both you and Ed have had on my family over the years. Camping, golf, bowling, hockey, and the list goes on! Whenever my parents needed your help, you guys were there. When my mom passed away you both were there for my dad. When my dad passed, you guys were there to help me and my family. Now I bet my parents are eager to return the favor, I bet they are setting up a tee time in heaven, waiting for Ed to arrive! Please do not hesitate to reach out for anything. Ed was a great Man, Dad and Friend. I will always remember him with a smile on his face, a positive attitude and great sense of humor! God bless you Ed, Dorothy and the rest of your family!
