Later in his life, he took up the carving of decoys under the guidance of his close friend, Gerald Smith. His decoys were beautifully carved and meticulously painted, true works of art that were made to be used.
Even though his health had been failing lately, Ed lived 92 years full of life and always on his own terms. We are all better people for having known him; we will miss him so.
ARRANGEMENTS: Burial will be private. A celebration of his life and his memory will be planned for later in the spring. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to VNA of Cape Cod Hospice, P. O. Box 370, Hyannis, MA, 02601.
