Ed is a State Emeritus referee which means he was a State referee for a number of years but has retired from that active grade. Ed has assisted PWSRA in a mentor capacity the past three years. He willingly jumps in a crew as a assistant referee-mentor to help a new referee in their first middle assignment.
- Ed is a competitive dancer and hopes to be selected for Dancing With the Stars
- Ed and Barry (Head Referee) got to know one another not through refereeing but through theater. Their kids, Robert Donahue and Bethany and Ashley Sherry, performed many times together with the Pied Piper Theatre. Ed and Barry were always cast as stage crew building sets and assisting backstage during performances. They made the magic of witches fly and tables levitate. Break a leg!
