He was much loved and will be greatly missed.“

Komar Company’s Mike Savage added, “I did work with Ed briefly he was a gentleman, very friendly and helpful. He had a great memory, knew almost every store in the country and the owner or the buyer, he knew when they last ordered, what they liked, it was pretty amazing.”
