    I’m very sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. He was a very good man with a fantastic sense of humor whom I thoroughly enjoyed working with at Lowe’s these past few years. He will be greatly missed but often remembered.

    Bud & family members, I don’t get the newspaper so I just found out today when I was leafing through a Webb Weekly that Ed had passed away. I was shocked because I had talked to him back in late Jan or early Feb when we were waiting at UPMC Montoursville Lab site. I asked him about going to Florida & he told me you and Jan & Leah were there & I thought he and his wife were planning to go to Florida also. I’m so sorry for your loss. He should have had many more years & the opportunity to enjoy retirement in sunny Florida weather. My deepest sympathy to you, Bud, and all of Ed’s family.

    I was sad to hear of Ed passing away. We went to Lycoming College together. Spent many an evening playing cards and ping pong.

    Ed was truly one of the good guys.

    He is now in God’s hands.

    I will pray for him.

Leave a Condolence
