I'm not sure if anyone reading this is especially interested because this isn't a grindcore site, but we do have information about services for Ed "The Watchman" Cowell. If you know anyone who might want to know this information, please pass it on to them:
Visitation- Friday, 2-4 and 7-9 pm @ McGorry's Funeral Home 14133 Detroit Ave, in Lakewood.
Memorial Service- Saturday, 10:00 am @ Trinity Cathedral on Euclid @ E.22. Burial follows immediately at Sunset Memorial Park.
Our metal director, Mike Hughes, just sent this e-mail out to all the WCSB staffers:
I talked to Ed Cowell's mom just now at 10:30 PM. She gave me the details on what happened. It seems Ed died of a blood clot traveling from his legs to his lungs. He collapsed and stopped breathing. CPR was administered at once, but did nothing. EMS arrived quickly, but could not revive him at all. He was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead.
His mom wants me to spread the word to anyone involved with WCSB, 'Watchman's Grind' or his favorite Lakewood 'haunts' (her word...not mine), that his viewing and funeral will be open to all. That includes listeners. . . The viewing will be this Friday at McGorray's Funeral Home from 2-4 PM and 7-9 PM. The church service will be at Trinity Cathedral (E22nd and Euclid) at 10 AM Saturday. The actual burial will be at some cemetary near Great Northern called Sunset Memorial. After that, some type of gathering will take place at some German folk center type place on Route 252. Obviously, all these details will be available at the viewing Friday.
