Ed was in my homeroom for my Junior and Senior year.  We did not know each other well, but it saddens me to see a deceased Vet without any sort of comment.  Carole Herson was in the same homeroom, so I would respectfully ask her to comment; if appropriate.

Fairs winds, and following seas...Thank you for your service to your Country at a time when most were trying their best to avoid such service.

It's 2017 and this post just arrived by email. I would like to wind back the clock to 1969, but too late. Ed was a solid guy and a friend you could always count on. You can't always count on everyone so that is a rare quality in a person and one to cherish, if you can find it. We were in car crashes toghether (Ed was a crazy driver), walked to school together (just down the street from Whitman) and spent a lot of time together. We were best friends. Ed had a high energy electric personality. He was always going hard and at the same time was a really, really funny guy. A great sense of humor.  He had a sly laugh when he got it and you didn't. I saw him once in Colorado when I was driving across country. We banged on the door of his isolated country home. Entering the long lonely drive we noticed that one light was on. Once at the door the light was off. We banged again. He answered with a 357 Magnum in his hand. Not really sure what that was all about. Just glad we were friends. Big energy, big smile and he jumped out of airplanes for a living. Love you Ed.
