Yea I pretty well know what was going on. I was just unsure of what the actual cause of death was. We both stared work at the machine shop in 1998 and have been there ever since. He is one of my closest friends, almost like and older brother or something. Ive worked side by side with him for 13 years. I didn't know of any health complications. He was definently going through a lot of stress and turmoil at the time of his passing though. He is very dearly missed. I just hope the best for his son Matthew.

Actually it wasnt any pills causing his death. and he wasnt in a car, he was in his bed with his little boy. I dont think you should post rumors on here when you do not know anything. And its pretty sad you have to start rumors about someone who just died!!! GET A LIFE

Actually, Travis Hicks is friends with my brother. They found Ed dead on the floor. He was fixing to change his lil' boys diaper and died. He died of a broken heart. His mom had just passed away and he was very close to her. Grief takes a major toll on people. When you lose someone close you don't know how you react to things. That poor family has faced a lot of tragedy. God love them!

Ed was not found anywhere except at his Mom's house where he suffered a massive heart attack while he was holding his precious son Matthew. Ed was a fine young man and doesn't deserve ugly comments made about him.

I am his niece, so lets clear all this up. He was found at my grandmothers (his mom) house at 8am the day after we buried her in the bedroom dead. He had a massive heart attack, his son was in bed with him. He was not on pills he had a history of high blood pressure and through the stress we were going through he did not take his medication. Yes he was found with a diaper in his hand and he was not in a vehicle in hartford. He is dearly missed and was loved very much.

I am Ed's first cousin and I was with him throughout his mothers sickness and death. I want to clarify that he WAS NOT on pills and he did die of a massive heart attack. His vehicle was not found anywhere but his mother's home where he was at with his son. Ed was a great person and a wonderful father. Can't you people leave him alone and quit trashing him on the internet hiding behind fake names. Besides it is none of your business. Our family has been through enough without having to hear about this garbage. As for Brandi she did post the absolute truth on here unlike you. So if you don't know what your talking about just keep your mouth shut...
