Ed was an awesome man, he was my uncle by marriage and taught me a lot. I only wish that I was allowed to see him before he passed. His work ethic will stay with me for all my days.

I wish you could have seen him too. His work ethic was truly the best. But also his caring and helping others was the greatest.

My uncle by marriage passed on to Heaven October 23, 2013. He will always be remembered by many for all the great things he did, from helping people build houses; to his drop box service. He was always great with our kids, showing them how to do different things and even picking berries out by the creek. His wife Florence was a true definition of a help mate always by his side helping with many of the jobs they did together. Ed and Flo made there home in the Chico Canyon and were married 37 years. Ed and Flo both helped with the restoration of the Honey Run Covered bridge. Ed will be missed for sure, loved the conversation we use to have, Ed was an outside man and loved nature, he could tell you all about the different kinds of birds and animals that were around their property. How do you say good bye to someone with so much knowledge. We love you Uncle ED.

I had the opportunity to live with my uncle Ed while I was growing up...I learned a great deal about dedication and hard work. He showed me how to line a hook to fish and explore the great Honey Run Canyon. Later years included him taking my children to pick wild berries (most recent 2006) around his property in the canyon. This is an experience me and my children will never forget. He will be missed.

There were so many life lessons learned out on Grandma Flo and Uncle Ed's property. Learned to drive a stick shift at age 12, Uncle Ed built us a go cart that had no brakes (just a clutch to disengage the drive shaft), regardless it was an awesome ride. Going fishing, tubing down the creek, having daily chores that taught you the meaning of no play until work is done. We rode Honda 90 trail bikes that Uncle Ed had purchased 3 broken ones for a guy in Paradise and was able to get two of them working just by swapping parts around. We also got to ride a three wheeler that Uncle ED built from different parts from the junkyard. Uncle Ed worked from sunup until after sun down many days and never complained. Uncle Ed was an extremely handy person that could tackle any job head on and eventually come out with positive results. The best word I can think of for Uncle Ed is resourceful, he did not believe in the throwaway society that the world has become and could make just about anything work once again. Love you and miss you, but will always keep these memories close to my heart.
