Condolences to you, his family and all his friends.

I never knew your father personally, but I knew of him, read his comments here with interest - they were usually wacky and funny - and Goonery & I took a couple of those yellow, plastic ducks with us to photograph on our recent trip in the States for him.

I'll remember your father fondly, even though I never met him, for his unmistakable love of life and people

We've lost a great friend :-(

Sincerest condolences to all Ed's family and everyone that knew him eother personnally or via the M2 community. Even though we never met, we spent many hours on e-mail and provate messages chatting about life the universe and everything.
Ed sent me some very fine gifts across the pond, The Route 66 sign, T shirts, and above all his incredible wit and humanity expressed via the communications we shared. It was part of a plan to meet up someday and share a beer or two. Now sadly that will never take place. I for one will remember Ed as a great buddy who always had time to to keep hold of reality but with a fun side on top.
I'll miss you Ed.

What? Ed is gone?

Oh my God, I never met him, but he sent me a t-shirt unprompted from the Dragon Run via Ruthie last year, and we were to meet when we went to the States in September. We had discussed travel arrangements.

I'm really saddened by this - his charm, goodness, kind nature and his soul shone through his posts and PMs.........he was a good, good man and it showed in the text.

May he rest in peace...........my sympathies to his family.

I never actually met Ed, but have read his enthusiasm within M2. He will be missed on these forums. Condolences for his family, judging from the response so far, he was a much loved guy. His memory will live on.

Peace

I really don't know what to say, I didn't want to believe this, how can one that was loved so much and gave so much be taken from us so suddenly

Ed is what makes this place great, he gave so much to so many, his love for the MINI, and making others laugh, it brought so many of us together. I would get bizarre PM's on the odd occasion from him, he made me laugh, and his wit was unique.

I always expected one day to meet him, I thought one day there would be a knock at the door and he would just turn up insisting on going for a drive, that would just be his style

Reading this makes me so sad knowing I shall not be lucky enough to meet him, but it also makes me smile to think how one man can have touched so many, he really will be missed. My thoughts are with you Dan and your family.

I'm so sorry, and thanks for letting us know. Why, just the other day, I had my antenna duck sitting on my desk at work to cheer me up through a 12 hour day.

Condolences to all of Ed's family & friends.

Very sorry for your loss. Ed looked, from the pictures alone, to be a good man.
