Edward R. Alt, 50, affectionately known as “Big Ed,” passed away at home surrounded by his family on March 16, 2013 after a year-long battle with Leukemia. Never one to give up easily, he fought his disease head on with courage, dignity and grace, never losing his sense of humor.
Ed was not only a person of huge stature, but a person with a huge heart and personality. He was a devoted husband and father, who treasured time with his family and friends. Ed worked hard, but he enjoyed life.
