Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I play volleyball with Ed, and am his neighbor. He took our son under his wing working for him odd jobs and playing volleyball together and will be missed from our volleyball community and neighborhood. RIP Ed! We will miss you and thank you for being a great neighbor!
