I worked as Ed’s secretary at McKinney Drilling Co. in Worthington. He was like a father to me and taught me so many things about life. Ed was a devoted family man and a wonderful Christian. He was a blessing in my life.

I will miss seeing your Dad at the Community Recreation Center. He did so well for his age also at church he always had a smile for everyone. He will be missed by everyone.

I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Ed when we both worked for Westerville. His dedication to Westerville will not be forgotten.
He was a good nice man.

We will surely miss Ed in the Teammates class. He was a joy to know, and he brought a lot of cheer and some great comments to our class time. Even in the face of illness, his faith and steadfast perseverance week after week were an inspiration to us all. God bless you all as you mourn his loss on earth, and celebrate his eternal life in heaven. Much love, Jim & Sue & Elva

Ed will be missed. His dry humor was enjoyed by the Teammates class for many years.
