    My condolences to the family. Teach was my favorite teacher in Northeast 50+ years ago and my bike mechanic shortly after. Great guy !! We,ve met up several times through the years talking bikes and whatever, to garage sales bargains. Always a super guy with the Biggest smile !!   I,m sure he is going to be the same in the hereafter. Greatly saddened my day to hear of   this.  See ya later Ed, hope fully !!

    So sorry to hear about the passing of Deems, and my thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family.   He was one of my best friends almost 60 years ago, and we spent a lot of time together in high school and Jr. College.  We have tried to keep in touch throughout the years, and I have many fond memories..

    Ed was cousin to my father John Deems Kedl. My father and I always looked forward to a visit from Deems. He would come in for a visit one year, then my father would go for a visit the next. I'll always remember them talking shop over the phone and calling to say merry Christmas. Those days are certainly missed.
