    I was lucky enough to work with Big Ed for to years. In that time I got to know him as a man that loved his wife and family. He also touched a lot of people in the ship yards. The young people in our trade were drawn to him for his knowledge and patience as he helped them learn our trade. I will miss him dearly and want to extend my deepest sympathies to his family.
