Jeff and family
I am very sorry for your loss. I always respected your father and his commitment to his craft. He was a true artisan. The last time I saw your father, unannounced he opened up his home to us for a sausage lunch and few hardy laughs.

Our heartfelt condolences to Bertha and the immediate family. Ed was a great brother. He would generously share his grapes, and raspberries which were grown in his yard. You could count on hearing polka music being played, as well his harmonica playing. The many enjoyable times will always be remembered. We will all miss him.

Our deepest condolences on the passing of our ‘Uncle Ed’. I have many fond memories of Soltesz visits to the Grimsby house-Ed’s cheery nature, gregarious debates with my dad Norm, and long summer evenings in the backyard with a BBQ and harmonica, are good childhood memories for myself and my sisters. Safe travels Ed, and sympathy to the whole family.

Ed was always wonderful to be around, he had time for everyone. I loved his bear hugs. We had so much fun playing cards to walking in the garden. Him and Mom had a great relationship. Ed always made you feel welcome. He loved Bertha, their affection for each other was easy to see.
