Professor Nebel was an often highly energetic individual. We all have our foibles but he did not really pretend to be other than who he was. I am glad he was fortunate enough to have travelled and done many audio books. He will be missed especially for his sense of humor and good nature.

I was in a class with Ed at Port Huron Northern High School and found him a really positive,intelligent guy.We went to a Bauhaus concert in Detroit and had a great time.Sadly,I never saw him after high school and was saddened to hear of his passing and problems.R.I.P. Ed.

Ed and I went to Skidmore together and shared some wonderful times in Paris during junior year abroad. We continued to develop our friendship when he moved to NYC and he and Stacy visited me when they were first married. He was a wonderful spirit and I treasure his place in my life. Unfortunately, we lost touch over the past 7-8 years.

I would love it if Stacy could contact me; I have a few things of Ed's that she may want.

Just found out (11 Months Later) about Ed's (aka Duward's) passing. It hit me like a semi. Ed was a great friend, mentor, collaborator, cheerleader of my work. Over the past 10 years I had very spotty contact (my own demons to contend with) but the old Bull always had a good grunt to give. My belated condolences to Stacey.

I realize this post is over a year old, but I was so saddened to read about Professor Nebels passing. He was so young do you have any details as to what happened to him? He was one of my favorite professors and he was so full of life! This just broke my heart. My thoughts are with his family.
