Spider was quick witted and could make anyone laugh. He was an animal lover with a green thumb. He loved tinkering in his garden and vibrant fish pond.
Ed approached life with an implacable smile and a knack for bringing joy to the lives of everyone he met. He loved his family and took great pride in his sons and grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
