So sooty to hear of Ed’s passing. I had the pleasure of getting to know Ed and Dorothy when their daughter Lori was a catcher for Northern Lehigh softball. They were great supporters of our team but especially Lori. With their support Lori developed into the best catcher that I ever coached or saw play in 40 years and she was a main reason why we won the 1988 State Championship. Ed was such a nice man, was always supportive of me as a coach . I know you all will miss him but I hope that your great memories of him will help you through the difficult times. And Lori... your old coach will have you in my thoughts and prayers!Brian Schell
