To the Sehy family , Ed was one of the good ones , I worked with and around Ed at both Kalamazoo Fisher Body and Grand Rapids Metal Fab . He was a guy you could rely on , whether about cutting Fire Wood or Fishing and many other things . When I needed a ride home , when I had transportation problems , Ed would be the first to volunteer for a ride home. I know the family and myself will miss him , a man who was generous with his time and knowledge.

Rest in peace good friend .

For the last 20 years Ed has been a fixture in our lives as our neighbor and we couldn’t have asked for a better one. The landscape feels empty without him and it’s heartbreaking. He will be dearly missed and we’re so deeply sorry that he’s gone. He was such an incredible man. Hugs and love to Kathy and family.
