Ed was my barber and a tremendous person to be around. I was shocked to hear of his passing as I thought he was doing better. The last time I spoke with him was at Rock Springs Golf course where he was in good spirits. May God give special comfort to all family members and especially Scotty, a friend of my son Bill during their high school years.
