    Dianne and family, Sorry for your loss, Ed was bigger than life, I worked for Ed for two yrs at the A@W in the hat. His striving for perfection and paying attention to the smallest detail in your work, stayed with me my whole life. RIP buddy…

  2. Marilyn Herrmann says:

    I have very fond memories of Ed when I worked for him and Diane at Mr. Submarine in 1980. I learned so much from him about management and customer service. He knew people and he was a master at promotion. I fondly remember Chad and Duane too – who were just little boys back then. Sending sincere sympathies to the entire family. It sounds like Ed was well loved and left lasting impressions on each of you. He will not be forgotten.

  3. Trudy Brown (Hubert) says:

    This is very late but I am sending it from the heart. Ed was my first boss and instilled in all of us the best standards of service and honesty. I worked for him at A &W in 1972 and 1973. He was great at making us laugh and appreciated it when we went above and beyond.
