Ed's Dad called me this morning advising me Ed passed suddenly yesterday.  Ed was residing in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Mr. Hoover said Ed had an aneurysm.  Apparently Ed was not aware he had this.  Ed was very active while a member of 101-12.  He was Chairman at the Washington Post, moved to Colorado Springs to work within the International Typographical Union as an Assistant to Thomas Kopeck, who was the Secretary-Treasurer at the time.
