I remember Ed as a good guy to be with.. While we were both on the Philly PD we did not know each other at that time. I meet Ed thru my brother,Ted Koiro and enjoyed several hunting & fishing trips with him..

Ed was one of my favorite co-workers at Showboat. I especially enjoyed his sense of humor, and his candor. He will be missed.

I knew Ed from the Bernard Goldberg forum, of which he was a respected member. Ed was nothing if not straightforward, a quality I much admire. He was also a patriot, and for me that's the highest praise there is. RIP Ed Saltzman, and may God bless his family.

Another member of the Goldberg forum here, who sorely misses Ed. A true patriot, as exemplified by his Coast Guard service and his career in law enforcement. He was a man who said what he meant and meant what he said. Sincere condolences to his family and friends on the loss of this good man.

I knew Mr. Saltzman as "NRAED" on Bernard Goldberg's website forums. I truly enjoyed reading his opinions and respected them. I would have been proud to call him a friend and I and the forum community will miss him greatly. May God bless his family.

My father Bob Bernstein and Ebbie were lifelong friends who shared many good and bad times together. I came to know Ebbie on many fishing trips with my Dad. Ebbie was a master fisherman catching many fish to my Dad's zero fish. My Dad passed away in 2005, I stayed in touch with Ebbie. Whenever we spoke I could sense the sadness of losing his oldest friend. They are now together again!!

I worked with Ed for many years in the Phila. P.D. He was a one of a kind individual, always honest and loyal. He never compromised his values. He always assure there were no problems in WDD. Every one who met Ed knew he was the real deal and would not be impressed by their acts. He was well respected by his co-workers and the entire community. I will never forget how much my children loved him. Annie, God bless you and your family. Lynn & Rea
