I, too, have good memories of Ed’s time at Sky Soaring. He knew how to
be a great friend, not just to the club, but to each of us. When the demise
of Sky Soaring seemed eminent he stepped in as our president and rallied
the members. He was a unifying force… we needed that. Later he became the
first self-described COG (crotchety old guy). He not only let us know when
the flight sheets were not kept well, but also when we were not meeting his
high standards of airport behavior… and he did it in a way that made us
feel better about ourselves. He only began limiting his time at the airport
when his wife of many years needed him. I, for one, greatly enjoyed knowing
Ed.
