A beautiful man cut down in the prime of his life. Ed you will be missed by many family and friends but the joy and great memories will live on a long time. I am very happy that we became reacquainted in the past couple of years after not seeing each other for far too long. My prayers are with his sons, wife and family at this time.

To Ed my friend from years ago, I’m having memories of the brown apollo (car) the early days of rock-n-roll, all the good times we had growing up in the neighborhood. Safe journeys,and we’ll all hook up later.

We own Capitol Harley-Davidson and have enjoyed knowing Ed for over 20 years. Ed bought Jills first custom Harley in the late 80’s. Ed came often to the dealership and he and I would sit over coffee and talk about an array of topics, always motorcycles were in the mix. Ed was a gentleman in the truest sense. He will be missed!!!!
