My wife, Deena Wetzel, and I just came across the news about Ed, and we are heartbroken. Ed was the work colleague and treasured friend of my father-in-law, Harold Wetzel, and once I met and got to know Ed, I quickly understood why. He was one of the wisest and toughest men I’ve ever met. I could listen to Ed talk all day long; he was that fascinating a guy. When my father-in-law passed away in 2017, we spent much of the memorial service for him just sharing memories and stories, and no one spoke more engagingly and eloquently about Harold than did his good friend Ed. Ed’s commanding and compassionate voice that day was a genuine blessing, and we immensely enjoyed all our visits (and lunches at Schreiner's) over the years. We will miss you dearly, Ed. The world was a better and far more interesting place with you in it. But we know you and Harold are having a good talk (and a hearty laugh at our expense) even as we speak, and that makes us smile. God bless you Ed.

Ed attended St. Timothy Lutheran Church as do I. As many church people do, we sat in the same area every week, so we often visited before and after church. At the 2019 Menasha Memorial Day Parade, I happened to stand next to Ed. Ed was wearing his Navy cap. Many parade participants stopped to thank Ed for his service. I felt honored to be standing next to Ed; and rightfully so, he appreciated the recognition. Rest in peace, Ed.
