It was a privilege to teach at CMS with Ed. He was the happiest man I knew. He always had a smile on his face and a good joke, which not only made his audience laugh, but made him laugh as well. He was a fabulous teacher and was beloved by all of his students. I am so deeply saddened at his passing. The "breakfast crew" will certainly miss him. My condolences to his family.

Ed was an amazing man who never knew a stranger, and never had a cross word to anyone. I'll miss our chats and our golf trips.
