Ed was City Treasurer when I joined the City of Windsor as an accountant in the Finance department in 1984.
Though just a new young guy at the time, he took me under his wing and was great mentor to me early in my career. I enjoyed our lunches and occasional golf outing and found him to be someone to look up to. I learned a lot from him and he was a great influence in my career. He will be sorely missed by all his friends at the City. May he rest in peace.
