Ed Eames was born in the Bronx, New York and educated at Bronx Science, City College and Cornell University. Armed with a Ph.D. in anthropology, he spent several years in India. His career as professor at Temple University in Philadelphia and Baruch College in New York City, continued when he and his wife Toni moved to Fresno to become adjuncts at California State. When faced with vision loss in middle age, Ed's interests turned to assistance dogs. He and Toni were co-founders of the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners and Ed became a champion for the rights of people with disabilities partnered with guide, hearing and service dogs. He was an outspoken advocate to make Fresno a barrier-free environment welcoming people with a variety of disabilities. With his infectious smile and easy manner, Ed gathered friends throughout the world. His death is grieved by Toni, his guide dog Latrell; and the many hearts and lives he touched. To honor and remember his life and legacy, please join us at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 2672 E. Alluvial, on Saturday, December 12:00 noon, for a pot luck feast and sharing stories and memories of a very special man. Please support Ed's passion by making a contribution in his name to IAADP, online at www.iaadp.org, or IAADP, P. O. Box 1326 Sterling Heights, Mi. 48311.
