    My deepest condolences to the family. I shared many fraternlty happenings with Ed. He was a very friendly, compassionate and top notch person. When we met at the HS reunion, he was the same Ed I knew in HS. Jovial and talkative. May he rest in peace.

    My sympathies to Alice,Lisa and Leslie. I know how much you all will miss your husband and father. I Learned a lot from Eddie from when I first started working as a manager for him in the mid 80’s. I still use some of those principals he taught back then. In many ways he was like a dad to me and I had a great deal of respect for him. He will be greatly missed.

    In life i had 3 mentors and Ed Kalaydjian was one of them. I loved him all my life and always respected him and the time he took to give me the tools in life necessary to make me a successful businessman i will never forget. He was passionate and compassionate and i appreciated EK more than most. I will always remember him in a bright light and we had the chance to speak a few months before his passing. Rest In PEace my good friend. I will always love and respect you. Thank you for paving the way.
