Ed had a wicked sense of humor and could always be found sporting his rainbow Crocs and T-shirts with sarcastic quotes. He was always planning his next tattoo even though he was quickly running out of space to put them!

Daughter Traci (Brian) Kane, their daughters; Brittani Kane (C.K.), and Erin Kane (Stretch), and her fiancé, Daniel Conlon. Ed leaves behind his beloved “Fur kids” Miss Molly and Mr. Dexter.
