My boys called him “Uncle Ed” since he and I were like brothers. He got me started “plinkin” with 22’s in the early 70’s thus planting the seed. That fall, he invited me to go hunting with him and his 4 sons. I certainly accepted and for the next couple years I hunted pretty much in his back pocket. As time went on and I became more experienced from watching and listening to him I became more confident and more successful. I moved away from the area several years later but we would come from opposite ends of the state and meet at “ED CAMP” every year for hunting. Later he moved to Oregon and couldn’t quite swing the hunting trip but his boys and I maintained the tradition. I now have a son that hunts with me. This October my son and I will meet up with two of his sons at “ED Camp”. Have some good times, tell the same old stories and reflect on ED.

Uncle Ed passed away last Wednesday.

May God bless him and his family.

Dean, I feel the warmth you shared with this man and his children. He is lucky to have a friend like you who will help raise his kids with solid core values and keep them on the straigt and narrow. The are fornuate to have some father figure they could turn to in times of need. Dont worry about all this, Im sure Ed will be there supporting you best he can with all this. Good luck to you, and face the trials and tribulations head on, you will win! God Bless!

He sounds like a great man. I'm glad his spirit will live on every time you hunt and you'll pass that same blessing on to your youngin(s).

Here's to ya Ed!
