I was fortunate to know Ed from his early days at VibeTech. His enthusiasm and professionalism made coming from warm FL to cold WI for Board meetings a significant bonus. I am sorry for your loss but honored for the opportunity to know Ed.

Dave & Sherry Beck

Chris & family, Although 30+ years have passed since we worked together, Ed always remained in my mind as one of my best associates. In reading his obituary and tribute from Vibe Tech, it's obvious that he grew even more. We are praying for your family to find peace. Dave & Sherry Beck

Dennis Appleton & Jennifer Buxton

Our hearts are broken at this news. Maybe the true testament to Ed is that, although we only knew him for a relatively short time, we feel like we've lost a lifelong friend. The adjectives are endless: smart, funny, caring, talented, capable, the list goes on and on. We are fortunate beyond description for the privilege of having had Ed in our lives. Our time at the cabin will never be the same; our lives will never be the same. The entire world is lessened with this loss. All of our love to his entire family, who were as lucky as a family can be. Jennifer and Dennis

Carol S Klein

Arlene C Boll

I am a high school classmate of Ed’s. (Eddie) He and I were friends and were often in the same activities: plays, band, sports….. Eddie always inspired me, esp with his intelligence, and musical skills -playing the baritone. We both went on to UW where we did get together on occasions. I was proud to know a member of the UW band!!! We chatted at class reunions as if time had not gone on. His death has shaken me. My sincerest sympathies. God bless you, your family, and all who loved Eddie. Arlene “Pie” Hemauer Boll
