  1. RIP Big Ed. You were a good friend, coworker, mentor, and phone buddy.
    Since we were both homebound we spent many hours on the phone talking
    about anything and everything from sports, politics, and all the old cronies
    we worked with. I’m gonna miss you, ole buddy.
    My condolences to the Parker family. He was so proud of his children and
    grandchildren. He spoke of you all often.

    Bill Logan
  2. Well Ed, you finally got your ticket on the Glory Train bound for Beulah Land.
    We’ll miss you with your smiles and laughter and your corny jokes.

    Say hello to Miss. Pat and the rest of the old timers that have gone on before

    All of Us, past & present at TCR/VALERO
