Ed was a cross between Professor Henry Higgins and A Grumpy Old Man! Most memorable was his concern for his students and his dedication to maintaining high standards for the community college. He had a wonderful ability with both the written and spoken word, He could turn a phrase humorously and sarcastically and always memorably. He was a tremendous pac-rat. After cleaning up one of his numerous offices I came across a large stash of wine, neatly put away in a plain brown box. Once when we tried to clean out a science closet the Grumpy sure came out. This clean out cost the college a lot of money paid to a disposal company to get rid smelly, outdated specimens from the bio lab. I remember Ed with many smiles, some anger, fondness and sadness. He kept us all on our toes; I wanted to be kept on my toes for longer.

Dearest Edward, Going to Burns Supper together was not to be, nor meeting in CT this year . It feels so empty without you. Thank you for everything.

I've known Edward ever since I was a little girl, going to work with my mom at Caprilands; I even remember helping him host luncheons, manning the register at the gift shop, and even bottle feeding the sheep. Edward holds a great place in my heart, and I can attribute many lifetime memories to him. My mother and I will be forever grateful for all that Edward has brought into our lives, and I know for a fact that his essence will be carried with us all wherever we may go. He was a very special friend, and I know he has made a lasting impression in many people's lives. We will miss him dearly. Rest easy Edward, may you now join your friends again up in heaven.

My condolences to Ed's family. Ed was such a unique person-- scientist, teacher , scholar, farmer, mentor to students, and often a thorn to his colleagues because he did love to stir things up from time to time.....Ed will also always have the distinction of having the most cluttered office on campus regardless of its official location. I will always remember Ed fondly even when shaking my head. But I willbw smiling no matter what the memory.

My name is Bob Hadley and I teach physics at Tunxis Community College where Ed worked for many years. I thought he would just go on forever, he belied his age. I had many stimulating conversations with him at Tunxis about a wide range of topics and learned a lot since he was so well read. His smile reminded me a little of the Grinch since it was so wide, but he didn't share the Grinch's disposition. He was always open to talk and I will miss him. He was on the committee that hired me at Tunxis in January 2010 and since he was teaching physics and chemistry before I got there, I was hired to relieve his load. His input was paramount to me being hired. I have always felt a debt of gratitude to Ed for being instrumental in getting me this job which I have enjoyed so much for the last decade. Thank you to whoever opened this forum for me to express my condolences.

Although Ed and I were in different academic departments, we became colleagues over the years and shared many similar views on higher education and life more broadly. I will miss our sporadic but always fruitful email exchanges and random, often protracted, informal conversations in the corridors of Tunxis. For better or for worse, Ed was a Real College Professor: intelligent, well-read, interesting, artful with both the spoken and written word, humorous, a master of both cynicism and sarcasm, difficult and stubborn at times, charming and gentlemanly at will. He was a constant in the Science Department for decades and the cornerstone of the Chemistry discipline. He loved his area of study and took great satisfaction in helping students learn, develop their skills, build their confidence, and achieve their academic and career goals. My sympathies to Ed’s family and friends on his passing. (Francis M. Coan Ph.D., Professor of History)
