Ed Garreau and my late father, Steve Keiss, were both members of the Peachtree (barbershop)Chorus and Ed and his wife, Peggy, were present at the Memorial service we held for my father in September, 2010. I recall ED as a warm and generous soul that was a loving father and devoted husband. His inurnment in the Georgia National Cemetery is testament to his service to our country during World War II. Rest in peace, good soul, you will be missed and remembered.
