The last time I saw Ed Loftus was last September. This was at the memorial service for my father, Rudy Norman. All three Loftus brothers were there - Dave, Ed, and Mike. It was a Saturday. This was as it should be. Because some of the happiest days of my father’s life were all those Saturdays with the Loftus brothers and the other members of his survey crew.

While other members of the Saturday survey crew came and went as various stages of their lives dictated, it was Ed who was always there - year after year. He kept my father (and the rest of us) laughing and happy, no matter what the circumstance. I can remember many a time during difficult surveys when one quick quip from Ed would instantly change my father’s mood from one of tension to wild hilarity.

I will always be thankful to Ed for the happiness he generated for my father every Saturday, and for always being there for him. Rudy Norman loved Ed Loftus, as we all did. Eddie will surely be missed.
