1961 - 2008
"I’m not the man they think I am. I’m a
in New York in 1961. Edwin spent most of his youth reading comic
books, science fiction magazines and of course, watching Star
Trek. Ed was fascinated with aviation. He’d spend his
entire life drawing aircraft, designing spaceships and building
models. His greatest dream was to pilot a rocket ship into outer
space and visit other worlds.
Ed was an avid collector of toys, comics and models as well as
replica props from movies and TV shows. He loved Halloween more
than any adult in his right mind could. Halloween was his favorite
day of the year. It was a chance for him to become a fighter pilot,
Rocket man or Astronaut among many, many heroes as well. It was
also an opportunity to showcase his amazing prop and costuming
skills. Ed would spend days and sometimes months working on the
perfect Halloween costume for himself and others!
Ed was a thoughtful, gentle, soft-spoken man with great passion
for his art, hobbies and friends. He was easily the most thoughtful
man I ever encountered in all my life and while I never took his
friendship for granted it never struck me how much it actually
had meant to me. We are all better people today for having known
such a wonderful, good-natured and inspiring man.
Ed’s greatest dream was to live among the stars; now finally
at peace he can do so forever.
Ed is survived by his brother John, sister Jacqueline and his
mother, Aida. We love you.
