Ed Bash was a vendor since April 1998. He sold on Capitol Hill, on 15th near the QFC and Safeway. Ed grew up in Seattle’s Central District, where he attended Madrona Elementary and Meany Jr. High. He graduated from Garrett Hayes High School in Shelton. He went on to become a welder and had an artistic side. He created beautiful wooden clocks from scraped logs and color pencil drawings of flowers. Edward had a great sense of humor.
Even while facing his last days, he still had jokes.
He faced death without sadness or fear. More with a sense of acceptance, peace and knowing he was going to join his brothers (and best friends) Mark, Rob and Charles, in a better place. Ed was father to six children: Celeste, James Jr., Shane, Armica, and a twin son and daughter, as well as 11 grandchildren. A memorial service was held in November.
