    I worked with Ed on several systems at Bethlehem Steel. Ed would never say “no” or “your wrong”. If Ed disagreed with your solution, he would always start “yeah, but”. Then he would patiently explain how he thought the solution could be realized. He was always willing to compromise and help you find a workable solution. He was a favorite of mine. His endless energy was also apparent at our extracurricular activities which included picnic activities, golf, football, and after work parties. He always had a smile and enjoyed working with anyone. After Ed retired we never connected again, but I thought of our conversations occasionally with fond memories. Rest In Peace Ed.
