Ed was my cousin. He died on June 13, 1996 from a heart attack. Ed's parents(Lucile and Mac McConeghy) both died in 1994. Ed was an only child. He was living in Fayetteville at the time of his death. He was divorced from his first wife, and engaged to a girl named Angela. Ed has one son, Edwin Ross McConeghy (18), who lives at Myrtle Beach, SC with his mother, Carmen. Ross is a real good basketball player. Ed would be very proud of him.

ed was one of my closest friends at cma. his dad was my favorite teacher ever!!!!! i used to spend weekend leaves at their house in maxton. they had a small dog who sat in a high chair like a toddler eating with the family. coach mconeghy would call the dog an SOB. ed and his mom would call him down on that comment. then coach would say to them,"the dog is an SOB, his mother is a  dog" i couldn't keep from laughing. even 38 yrs later, it is funny.when i was contacted to attend the first CMA  reunion, frank lea asked for some names, and the first name i named was ed mcconeghy. he told me that ed had died. i felt like i had lost a brother. ed lived and breathed the detroit tigers. i still remember the starting lineup from 1968," THE YEAR OF THE TIGER". the last real pennant race. ed had an amazing radio voice. he had a little 3 watt transmitter, and in violation of FCC rules, we had a pirate radio station(WCMA) at CMA.ed and his family(COACH, and dog included) were some of the nicest people ever. i still tell stories about COACH (playing hangman with him in class, the typewriter salesman who typed 165 words a minute, while wearing mittens on an old royal or underwood typewriter, finger incident at track practice, etc). ed, you and the coach will never be forgotten
