Dear Joan and all the Balzarini family,
Ed was a fun and crazy guy! We grew up with him and I saw him numerous times toiling in his automotive shelving and inventory business. We "hooked up" many time when a few of our close friends got together as well as when we just ran into each other. Eddie will be missed for sure for his infectious smile and laugh and of course "Hook Me Up!" will be forever in our hearts as an ode to him!

I have had the pleasure of calling Ed my friend for the past 45 years. We spent many holidays, weekends and just fun social get togethers with many other mutual friends, Fishing,sking,boating and B S ING over a beer at the local club. Ed was a real stand up guy, Atop shelf human being. It's so sad to think he will not be with us any longer to share what's left of the good times for all of us. Ed will be deaply missed but never forgotten.

Ed was a member of the class of 1969 at AHS. He contributed greatly to the cherished memories we all carry with us. Even though separated by the years as we led our different lives and aged ,he was the same old "Ed" seeing him at our "51st reunion.
He will be remembered. May his journey be blessed and peaceful.

So sorry to hear of Eddie's passing. We were neighbors in Sagamore Beach; the best unknown place on all of Cape Cod and I was blessed to know him. We played pick-up, men's hockey at Gallo Ice Arena and on a somewhat regular basis and he was always a true gentleman on and off the ice. Rest in Peace Ed, condolences to Joan and Deanne.
