I didn't know of Ed's passing until a family member told me that Mechanica was closed. Ed and his wife were always friendly and gracious to us as customers, and Ed and my husband Wah Ho enjoyed talking about cars together. Everyone in our family trusted him to take care of our various vehicles, however old they were, and to give us good advice about maintenance and repairs. We will miss him greatly - Martha and all the ChansoqGv5

I am very sad to hear of Ed's passing. I met Ed as a mechanica customer and due to the number of teenagers I have and the cars they have and the problems they (the cars) have, I was a very regular customer. Ed was a very caring, thoughtful person and we had some great conversations about cars, music, and life. I got to the point where I was secretly happy when my cars needed service because it was a change to talk to Ed. My favorite story about Ed was from when I was picking up one car for repair and I told him a planned to bring in another car for some brake work. He told me gently with a smile: "I know it is not good for my business but you shouldn't put any money into that car. You should junk it instead." He was right of course but my wife brought it in to him to get the brakes fixed to give it another year before we did junk it. Then she bought a brand new mercedes because she deserved it after driving that junker for so long. My condolences to his family. We will all miss him.
