    Ed was a wonderful man. We spent many hours talking hockey and auto racing over the years. I remember once in Chilliwack a group of Blazer fans were being harassed and he stood up and told the idiot’s to get lost. They left immediately. I know they listened to my racing and hockey broadcasts on KBFW in the rare occasion they could not attend the event. He is very happy to be reunited with Bernie. Rest in peace kind sir!
