In Memoriam: Ed Block Leaves an Extensive Legacy 

Ed BlockWe’ve lost a beloved member of our Community Foundation family. Ed Block, one of our founders and a passionate civic leader, passed away on August 16th.

Ed and his wife of 66 years, Shirley, moved to Key West following Ed’s long career in public relations, advertising and communications. In 1996, he helped establish the Community Foundation and was its first Chairman until 2003. Ed continued to stay involved with the Foundation as a Board Advisor, and he and Shirley have been donors and supporters for 20 years. Ed was also involved in the Tennessee Williams Performing Arts Center, Citizen newspaper editorial board, and numerous others.

We’ll miss Ed’s wisdom, dedicated leadership, community-minded spirit, quick wit, and incredible generosity. He leaves a significant impact on the Florida Keys for generations to come.

Recently, Ed talked about the inspiration in creating the Community Foundation in a special video for our 20th anniversary. (See the Three Founders video below.)
