"Andrea (Ed's wife) is my first cousin. My family and I had the privilege of spending the last 25 + years with him and Andrea at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Birthday Parties and Graduation Parties for my daughter and son. He was extremely helpful with any help we needed with the meal and cleanup! Many times he rolled up his sleeves and pitched in. I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with him after dinner at the table. He was so knowledgeable on so many subjects and was so interesting to talk with. My husband enjoyed talking "shop" with him. He was so devoted to Andrea. They were one of the happiest couples we knew. He truly loved Andrea and their cats. It was a "shock" to my whole family that he died. We will miss him greatly and the holidays won't be the same without him. My heart goes out to Andrea and her loss."
"I learned a lot from Ed during the 30 years that I worked with him. He was a good friend and trusted colleague. The UGI family will miss him. Peter Terranova "
