I first met Ed when we were both in the DC area and it was always a pleasure to see him again, and Irma too, at the annual CIDAA Reunions. Al was right when it came to the card games. Ed was a terrific individual, dedicated family man, and true professional in his careers. Rest in peace, "Fast Eddie".

Ed Stress (RIP)..he was one of my early mentors when I was a Provost Marshal Investigator (PMI) attached to the 4th MP Det (CI), Military District of Washington (MDW), Ft Myer, VA. He quickly became a good friend -- and he always took the time to teach me, and others, the right way to be an Investigator. Dannie Taylor, as he has posted here, was Ed's partner at the CID Branch Office, Walter Reed Medical Center. We were a tight bunch -- Ruben "RC" Young (RIP), James F Triana (RIP), Flip Feher (RIP), Pete Comras, Paul Flannagan, Terry McArdle, Bob McDonald (RIP), Drew Diamond, Dave Currier (RIP), and others. Ed was instrumental in my personal career by teaching me the in's and out's of being an "Investigator" and becoming a "Criminal Investigator" when I was accepted into the CID. Our paths crossed very briefly again in Korea (1972) when Ed was assigned to CID ASCOM and I was finishing up my assignment at the 2nd MP Det CID, Seoul. Ed Stress -- CID Special Agent, friend, mentor, good all around man who I had the honor of knowing. Thank you for your kindness and friendship. Rest in Peace Ed -- you have earned it!!

Ed and I were in PSD at Command in the early 70's. Able to meet and greet at CIDAA functions and counted him as a good friend. Will miss Ed and I am sure he is in Heaven enjoying and game of cards and always winning. Sleep well Ed.

I lost a dear friend today as Eddie Stress my first CID partner and mentor (1969) has gone to be with God. I'm in total shock and disbelief. I just received a Thanksgiving card from Eddie on Saturday. We always kept in touch on the web and by mail. Eddie was my first partner in CID. we were assigned to the 4th CID, Ft Myer 1969-70 & 71-72 with duty at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center Branch Office. Eddie taught me so much and we had such a great time on investigations, surveillance's and with our families at BBQ's. I last saw Eddie in person at the CIDAA meeting in Las Vegas where we caught up on old times. To say I'm saddened is a mild understatement. I hope God will watch over Irma, she is such a nice lady and loved Eddie very much. Sorry, I could go on and on about things we did together but it's hard to type through tears. I'm thinking of you my friend and will never forget our friendship. Life is fragile; love your loved ones like today is the last day. Tula and I will be driving from Arizona to Las Vegas for the funeral.

Ed the Stress, it's been a long time since we had served together, but you certainly were not forgotten. I fondly recall the great times we had professionally and personally!
Rest in peace, Ed--you earned it!
