    I worked with Ed and his brother Harold for many years at the Texaco Research Center in Beacon, NY. I also would run into him and Cora when they were working various venues around the area. Great people. Ed was a great guy to work with and always there to lend a helping hand when it was needed. He was very entertaining and helped lighten up the workplace. I have thought of him over the years and am sorry I will never have the chance to relive old times with him.

    Rest in Peace Eddie! My deepest sympathy to your family. I will always remember you and your crazy stories, endless pots of coffee and packs of cigarettes that made our days & nights easier at TEXACO. You made us laugh...ALOT and I tell your stories to this day. No one could believe the Texaco nut house unless you worked there :>) I felt that special bond since the day you told me your band played at my parents wedding. Take care Eddie...
