I am very sorry to read about the loss of Ed Magee. I had the privilege of working for Ed at CF Industries. He was a very good man.

To Randy and the rest of Ed's family,
my sincere condolences on his passing.
It was a delight to be his customer at Magee's marine. He always had a smile
on his face, a friendly greeting, and told a good story. And always did his best
for his customers.
