Even though their time together was short Ed was an automatic father to Susan's sons Bradley and Tommy Mattos. Not having kids of his own, he took on the role of dad and never looked back. He was very proud of both boys and loved them like his own. He was a lover of the outdoors and animals. He cooked every chance he could and he was good at it. He loved playing golf and riding his motorcycle.
