I didn't know Ed Pincus sensei personally. I've found out about him a while ago while looking for students of the late Terry Dobson sensei. If I remember correctly in the Aikido of Champlain Valley web site there were some stories of his or maybe his son's experience with Terry Dobson as a teacher.
It is very sad that not only we are at the end of the era of the direct students of the founder, but also in an era that the group of the 3rd generation students is dwindling.
My sincere condolences to his family, and his students.
Your certainly a guy who makes people feel cheerful.How about setting up a 'Whose gonna snuff it next ?'blog.A bit like the Dirty Harry movie.Cheers, Joe.
