Like Celeste Ed was also my uncle. I am the son of His Sister, Mary and Celeste is the Daughter of Judy, Ed's and Mary's Sister. My Mother Spoke of him often. My Dad, a California Highway Patrolman frequently played baseball against Ed's team and knew him. However My Dad, Jim Wallace Did not meet my Mom until 1938, a year after Ed had passed.

My Mom and her family have always revered his memory. lHe will always be remembered

If you ever watch the movie, Dirty Harry, you will see the SFPD Memorial with his name on it. This is shown within the first 10 minutes of the movie.
