Ed Garvey was the kind of guy you just enjoyed being around because he was incredibly smart, very funny, seemingly unafraid of anything or anyone, with a huge heart.

He was talk and action — lots of action. And usually on behalf of those whose voices were too easily overlooked by those with more power or money or influence.

We hold his wife Betty, his family and so many friends, in our hearts, our sad hearts.

Madison is a better place thanks to Ed Garvey, Clyde StubblefieldBut, on the heels of the death of another big-hearted, warm, remarkably talented man, The Funky Drummer Clyde Stubblefield, we are reminded of how lucky Madison has been to have people like this in our lives.

At first blush there aren’t a lot of similarities between the two…although likely more than we knew. But there just aren’t a lot of cities Madison’s size that can say two people as renowned, respected and beloved as Ed Garvey and Clyde Stubblefield called home. And we are far a better place because of it.
