  • My thoughts to the family.
    I have many fond memories of Ed. We drifted apart later in life but always good to see him when I ran into him in Ashland.
    A lot of laughs through the years.
    A great guy!

  • I was so saddened to read of Eddie’s passing. My deepest sympathy to the family. He was a classmate and I have so many great memories of our time at Hillsdale. He was so much fun to be around and always had us laughing. And every time I saw him at WalMart, he would have a funny story to tell me. Also, his mother was my Home Ec teacher and she was my favorite teacher. He will be greatly missed. Again, my deepest sympathy.

  • Many blessings to the Zody family. Have wonderful memories of Eddie when we were neighbors and later whenever we ran into each other around Ashland.
