What Chuck said times 1000. Ed was a genuinely good dude. He and I raced many times over the years in Super Stock as he always out qualified me by a ton. No matter what, he was always kind and never played games. He seemed to enjoy being at the races no matter the horrible heat at Tulsa or Topeka. Missed him being at the races the last several years. May he rest in peace.

Godspeed my friend. He used to give me are hard time about running a stick shift. It was all in fun. I’ve missed seeing him at the track. He’s home with his wife now.

Another racer just let me know. To say it’s upsetting is a understatement. I first got to know Ed I’m the late 90’s. He tuned my bracket car after I was running into problems trying to tune the factory PCM. A few years later I moved to Illinois. And I started hauling my cars down there to his shop to tune them on his Dyno. We became friends. And he went on to help me immensely. At one point before he started ruining his car in SS. I was down there getting a car tuned. And was telling him I was building a new engine. He walked over to a shelf and tore the end off a camshaft box and wrote the number down off a ATI box. And said here order this cam and converter it’ll save you time. He was like that. Always willing to help. I think that was the same trip he took me to his house and showed me his SSer. He was so passionate about it and made it sound so fun. I ended up building my stocker. I could call him or email him any time. And he’d always help. Just can’t say enough good stuff about the guy. Sadly we didn’t talk as much lately since he retired and I got hurt and had to take a break. I just told my wife yesterday I need to call him. RIP Ed. We lost another very good man yesterday.

I also looked forward to reading his posts on here.
I had the good fortune to meet and chat with him a little when we first started in Stk. No doubt he was an example we can all follow.

RIP. I have the same thoughts as many others here - I never met Ed, but interacted (briefly) enough online and read enough of his wisdom to know that he was one of the good ones; a true gentleman who was a credit to Stock and Super Stock racing.
