Some of my best memories of Ed was when he would stop by at the garage for a visit, a bag of peanuts, and talk Blue Jay banter. I will always be grateful to Ed for giving me my first full time job at the Manitoulin Livestock Co-Op. Ed had a genuine concern for the community and will be missed by all who knew him.
