Statement from Dallas Cothrum, Masterplan CEO:
Masterplan lost one its finest colleagues on Saturday, November 18, following a fall in his home. Ed brought a special vitality to the office every day. His endless good cheer for his colleagues and clients will be missed.
The Dallas native was a graduate of Lake Highlands High School before earning a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Southern Methodist University.
Ed worked for the City of Dallas in a number of positions in Building Inspection before joining Masterplan. Ed had a total mastery of the Development Code and used it to zealously represent his clients. Clients and colleagues delighted in spending time with Ed. He could (and often did) discuss building code requirements and Marcel Proust in the same conversation. His quirkiness and true caring for others cannot be replaced.
Please join me and all his colleagues by adopting his trademark optimism about life. We plan to permanently adopt what he told us every day before he would leave: “Tomorrow’s going to be great.”
