Ed Bamberger of Single Gourmet Died Sunday

Ed Bamberger of Single Gourmet.

Ed Bamberger, a great lover of fine food, wine, and travel, died Sunday after a long battle with prostate cancer. According to his wife Mariann, Ed passed away peacefully in his sleep.

Ed described himself as “an easy-going people person.” He was active in the food and wine community and volunteered his time for events. Ed also organized Single Gourmet, an organization that brought single people together through special food-related events.

He also had a keen eye for grammatical errors. I got emails from him all the time notifying me of typos or broken links on SideDish.

A memorial service will take place in a few weeks. Ed, I’m not going to divulge your SideDish user name, but the brilliant observations you brought to our forum will be missed.

Feel free to leave messages to the family below. I will post details for the memorial when they are finalized.
