Our thoughts and prayers are with you today. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of our summer vacations visiting Uncle Ed and Aunt Margie. He was always up for an adventure whether it was just piling all us kids into his VW bug to get ice-cream or taking my Dad to the annual Michigan State vs Ohio State football game. You could always count on Uncle Ed for engaging conversation on any and all subjects and he never stopped wanting to learn new things like mastering the art of French scrambled eggs that Carole showed him on his last visit to our home. He will be missed by all who knew him, but rest assured that he is in good hands. Our heartfelt condolences to your family.

We met Ed through Memorial Meals at Windsor meal site. Leo and I loved your Dad. Always a gentleman, His lunch drinks were always water no ice, chocolate milk and a cup of coffee. He will be missed by all....we had tried several times to get him to sit at the "men's" table.....it took some time but before long he looked forward to sitting with Melvin, John and Terry. Many great conversations took place after that time. We are heavy hearted with his passing....God Bless all of you..

Dr. McCabe was a wonderful person. My first husband, Dave Oren, worked at Westreco for more than 25 years. I remember shortly after we first moved to Marysville, Ed and his wife, invited us for lunch after church. You older children were grade school, We so enjoyed getting to know the McCabe family. In Dave's later years, he was plagued with several ailments, including severe mental health issues, which distanced him from his co-workers. When Dave died, Ed's visit to the funeral home meant so much to my daughters as he was the only non-family member in attendance. Ed was among the most brilliant and thoughtful people that I have ever known. He lived a wonderful Christian life. My thoughts and prayers are with you doing this very difficult loss.

Uncle Ed, remembering what a wonderful man you were, your kindness especially when I was young, making a special trip for my wedding but most of all being there for my Dad at the end of his life so he could reminisce and say good-bye. To my cousins - thinking of all of you as you celebrate your Dad's remarkable life and wishing you comfort. Peg McCabe Ashlevitz

I had the privilege of working for Dr. McCabe in the summers when I was going to college to study Chemistry. He was a great Mentor for me and inspired me to continue my studies. The testing protocol used today to identify DNA was a standard lab procedure in Dr. Ed's lab in 1970 far before it was used in criminology labs. I love this fine man for the positive influence he has had on my life. May God Bless him.

I worked for Ed for several years on projects. He was a great guy. I remember getting a loan from the credit union when it was a little gray metal box in his desk drawer! Lol! He always had time to talk with you . Loved his stories about his boxing in the military! You will always be remembered.
