Edward T. Black Family Fund

Edward Black was a loving father and husband, a devoted son, and a great friend.   He was slow to anger, and quick to forgive; he showed up on time; he did what he said he'd do; and he took care of his people.  He had a quirky wit, an infectious smile, and a perpetually mischievous twinkle in his eye.  All of us who knew him are better for it. and all of us will miss him dearly.  

Ed passed away February 11.  2018.  He was the primary means of financial support for his wife, Deanne, and their four children.  Please join us in honoring Ed's memory and supporting his family.
