Our sympathy. Ed was and is an example to those around him. I can remember when I was very young Ed was one of those guys that one thinks " Wow, there's something special about him and then I met his wife and as the old saying goes...behind every good man is a good woman. Rest In Peace Ed. Till we meet again.

Our deepest sympathies to Leola, FAMIL, and friends of Edward Robert. Eternal hope lies in the fact that Ed and Leola remained close to the Lord and they made all who knew them and their family feel that Spiritual Bond with GOD. He will be MISSED! You all will remain in our PRAYERS, even in our absents. LOVE and GOD BLESSINGS, Pat & Dave W.

What a wonderful, kind and caring man, a true example of what it mean to be Christlike and humble. Enjoy your long awaited conversations with your Heavenly Father.

"Mr. Ed" will be missed greatly! I worked with Ed at Hampton Distributing and found him to be one of the most honorable and kind gentleman I've ever met. He and his wife are the salt of the earth! Prayers and hugs to all the family!
