My condolences to Ed's family. He and I worked together many years at the VA Medical Center in Topeka. He was a great employee and we enjoyed many hours as two veterans of the US Navy swapping 'sea stories'. Fair winds and calm seas my friend.

It has been a long time since I got to see uncle Eddie. The last time we talked it was about our time we did in the navy. I will miss him a lot. My condolences to my dad, uncles and cousins.

I didn’t know Mr. McCoy, but my husband knew the family in Lakin. I grew up in Topeka. His accomplishments in life were marvelous. I really enjoyed reading his obituary. The good Lord was his copilot in life for sure. I was blessed as I read about his life. Topeka was a better place because of him too. Thank you!

Uncle Eddie, the "quiet" McCoy. Didn't always have a lot to say, but what he did say was always worth listening to.
You are missed.
