I met Ed on my first visit with my son and and a friend to Sky Soaring.
My son and friend were there for a glider ride and I was the designated driver.
My son was about twelve years old and Ed gave him his first memorable ride and even some stick time. We were told that Ed was the club president at that time and Ed and the club members made for a memorable visit. That experience was the reason I joined the club two years later. I am grateful for his friendship and the many good memories we shared. He was a devoted husband to Geraldine and a man of good character. He was instrumental in shaping not only our club but, as Larry said, doing it in a way that made us all feel better about ourselves. God bless Ed.
