I sat by Ed at Ashland Christian Church for the last couple years and enjoyed his stories and wonderful personality. He was always a kind and caring man and my prayers are with you all at this time. He will be missed.

Ed was such a great guy with a bright and helpful personality. We knew him from working with the Mapleton School District. He will be greatly missed.

Dear Family,

We are saddened to hear of the passing of Ed. "George" was the best of the best. He totally knew how to handle kids on his bus as he has hauled 3 generations in the Bates family. He was very faithful in the church at Ashland Christian and he has been so missed because of him being ill. I will so miss our weekly Sunday hugs. Please find comfort in knowing that he has reached his eternal home and the reunion with his loved ones had to be so spectacular!...and what is better, we will see him again. It does not get any better than that! Prayers for comfort at this time of sadness..
