                    Alan and his father


Joan Houchen (a neighbor and friend of Eddie’s) remembers when she was sent to Firlands for TB. She called home, cried, and pleaded for help.

Ed showed up. He picked her up and said, "We’re going home."

He carried her out and took her home!

Ed Larsen ( son ) was only 19 years when his father was accidently electrocuted while building their summer cabin on Camano Island.
