I taught Motorcycle Safety classes with Ed for twenty years. I enjoyed his personality and company each and every day. His dedication and commitment to what he believed in was commendable. We did many memorable motorcycle rides together. Most notable was a ride to Hudson Bay on the east side in Quebec. I spoke with him in December just before he left for Florida. He was in good spirits and looking for to riding in winter. RIP Eddie. Love you.

I'm so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I've known him since I was born back in the early 70's. He is a cousin of my mother and used to come into her coffee shop all the time when I was young. The community has lost a great one with his passing. My condolences to you all during this very difficult time.

So sorry to hear of Ed's passing. Have not seen him for many years but I always enjoyed his company when he was working for the Sheriff Department and I was with the Michigan State Police. He was a true professional who always wore a great smile and had a witty comment to share. Deepest condolences to the Lovato family. Rest in Peace Ed.

Eddie was a great guy. We were classmates and had lots of good times in high school. Together we tried to get away with lots of stuff in school. Sometimes we succeeded (paper planes in study hall, pink vapors filling the ceiling in chemistry) and we were caught a few times (Maule always seemed to catch us). Altho I seldom saw him after high school, he did join our class lunch group on one occasion last year. Ed was a very kind and caring guy. You enjoyed time with him and will miss him on sunny summer days.
