    Our beloved “Biker Baby”. My heart is heavy with sorrow but filled with joy of the memories that my daughters have of you. I can remember eveytime we would come visit we could hear you say “who’s coming in my house”. This would get their little legs running faster up the stairs to greet you. You’ll be greated at the Pearly Gates by a great guy named Jim. Cheers to two nutty Irishmen! Until we meet again….

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Ed came into my life 5 years ago and I have wonderful memories of time spent with him. He was a true person and I trusted what he told me. He always wanted to make me smile and made me feel like he genuinely cares about me. He will be missed.

    To number one and number two sons and families, I am so very sorry for the loss of your dad. I knew your dad from Massachusetts General Hospital. He was one of the kindest, nicest and most sincere people I have ever met. He was always asking how others were, right to the end. Never a complaint from him. He truly enjoyed life and made mine and many others days at the hospital pleasant ones. He will be sorely missed at the hospital. Though I’ll miss him, I’m thankful and blessed for having had the opportunity to know him.
    With my deepest sympathies, Doris Regal

    To Eddie’s family, I am so sorry to hear of his passing and your loss. You are probably wondering who I am. I’m sorry to say I don’t know you at all, but I knew Eddie. At least when we were little kids. We lived on a great street in St. Ann’s parish. We went to school together, and lived across the street from each other. We were in and out of each other’s houses all day long. Eddie, Tommy Ryan, Chris Chrisafi, and my brother Jerry and I, etc. discovered our neighborhood together. He was a great kid. A lot of fun to be with, and very easy to like and get along with. I am so happy to hear that never changed, that he had such a good life, and that his family and friends all loved him. Please accept the heartfelt condolences of my family. To Eddie, you were one of my very first friends. Thank you for that pal. God bless you and may you rest in Peace.

    To the whole Conlon family,
    I was shocked when I heard the news.
    My condolences to you all.
    I miss the days having coffee across the street from our office. Your father always had great stories to tell and he and I became very close.
    He would talk about both of you, grandchildren and never forgot my son whether it was bike week, his birthday or Christmas. He always seemed to put everyone before himself.
    Ed will be missed and the world has lost what a real man should be.
    I will pray that your the family will heal in this time of sorrow.

    Ed meant so much to Rex and me and we will treasure him and stories of him always.

  14. Susan Gauthier on September 10, 2016 at 3:35 pm

    To the Conlon family. My deepest,sincerest condolences go out to your family. Although I have never met any of you, I knew your father for many many years through MGH. I would always make it a point to make sure I got to see him outside for coffee. He always asked how my family and myself were doing and was always there for advice. A great listener, story teller, confidant and a true gentleman. Never forgetting my birthday and I never forgetting his, exchanging cards and phone calls when we didn’t see each other for awhile. He referred to me as “Calstat .” Loved hearing stories of #1 and #2 sons, until one day I asked what are their real names Ed? He laughed so hard and said Ed and Eric. He talked of the both of you often so I know he loved the both of you very much. I will deeply miss him but certainly not forget him, especially his words. I am blessed to have known him and to have had him at my home for family gathering. His words always to me when we parted to go back to work, ” love ya and be good and if you can’t be good be good at it”

    To the Conlon family, I am truly saddened by the news of your dad’s passing. We had some wonderful times together. He was a good man. Always caring and always there for anyone in need. He will be greatly missed.

  18. Marquez Family on September 13, 2016 at 5:12 pm

    The the family. Ed was always respectful and great with me. At one time I made a command desicion in which I could see he needed to go to emergency. Reluctantly as he was acting, all it took was for me to say, “Ed, if I ignore this and something happens to you I could never forgive myself.” And so he let me wheel him into emergency. I will miss my friend dearly and how he would call me son.

    Rest in peace my friend “SEMPER FI”

  19. Bob Russo on September 14, 2016 at 10:03 pm

    I rode with Bulldog while he was with the enforcers and he was one of the nicest men around. Always smiling, always happy, and always willing to pitch in and help get things done.

    RIP Brother Bulldog, I’m sure they have a few twisty roads in heaven and a fast bike with your name on it.
