My condolences to the Mink family. I worked with Ed on Sands EMS, and always enjoyed his enthusiasm to providing care to our community. Rest in piece Ed!

I worked at Stan/Eval back in 1974 and had the opportunity to meet and work with Ed. He was always a gentleman and proficient in what he did. I stayed in the Marquette area following my leaving the Air Force in '76 and hadn't thought of Ed since that time. Reading his obit in the Mining Journal brought back fond memories of a genuinely good person. Rest in Peace Ed. My condolences to the family.

My condolences to Jane and the family. I worked with both Ed and John on the Sands EMT program Ed will be missed by those who’ve known him
