Ed’s overriding trait is loyalty-loyalty to family, country, church, community and friends.  Ed was long involved with many groups and organizations.  Ed coached girls’ softball teams for 32 years (1969-2001-part of 5 decades), including the Roos and the Flower Pots, as well as managing the Lombard travel team, winning Lombard’s first state championship.  Ed also coached the Sacred Heart School girls’ track and cross country team for 35 years.  Ed even tried his hand at coaching Glenbard East freshman softball team (1993), the Montini HS freshman softball team (1994-1998) and the Sacred Heart School boys’ 5th-6th grade basketball team (2000-2002).  So what does one do in the Fall?  Well for many years, you join the Sacred Heart School football program on the “chain gang” at home football games.  Ed positively impacted the lives of over 500 girls and boys through coaching and positive attitude. Ed was a graduate of York High School where he played football, basketball, baseball and the tuba in the band.  He graduated from Miami University of Ohio where he received his BS in Business.

Ed, always a proponent of Lombard, was a member of the Village of Lombard Finance Committee for 44 years (1967-2011), as well as the Lombard Hotel-Motel/Community Promotions and Tourism for 28 years (1987-2015).  At Sacred Heart Church, he was a Mass usher for 50 years.  He was on the Sacred Heart School Board (1970-1973) and worked 24 of the 25 German Fests cooking brats (and drinking some beer).  An avid sports fan, Ed was a season ticket holder for the Chicago Bears, loved the Cubs and always enjoyed golf with his buddies.  Ed loved meeting up with his friends and was one of the first to jump in on a project.  Most importantly, Ed dedicated himself to his family and their happiness.

In lieu of flowers, take a friend to breakfast in Ed’s honor.
