  8. I am so sorry to hear about Ed. As a child I spent a lot of time at his shop with my sister and daddy when he would stop to see Ed, Randy and Queenie. Ed was always nice to us little girls. My red ’86 ranger went to him and Randy to be fixed frequently for tranny work when I was in college, and Ed jokingly called it the red hemorrhoid. He was funny and I appreciated his sense of humor, even when he forgot to put my driveshaft back on and I had no 4×4 in a snow storm. I wear my dad’s old Kirchel’s auto jacket still. I am so sorry for your loss.

  9. Marilyn, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Ed was my father’s good friend. He could fix anything and always has a solution to the problem.
    Ed, Rest In Peace my friend.
