I'm really sorry to report that Ed Toutant, who was a close friend of Bob Burns and an associate producer on my documentary Rondo and Bob passed away today after battling the effects of a brain tumor. It was a big irony for Ed whose claim to fame was winning Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?. He was an incredibly intelligent person. He was also a great guy and a great help with the documentary, which will now be dedicated to him. He was surrounded by his family as he passed. Rest in peace, Ed.

One of our greats

:(

That's very sad news. Thanks for passing the word along. Farewell, Ed. --Bob

Just came back tonight because this was the first place I met Ed. He was very kind online and even kinder later in person. I know he will be missed.

RIP Ed.
Ed Toutant was TheConfessor here on the Board. Some newer folks might not be able to match screen names with the real people.

So sad. I had the pleasure of spending a little time with Ed during the Mike Hardware MiniJipterFest. Such a gentleman. May his bioluminescence shine into infinity.
Love,

Sad to see this.

The angels are currently battling each other over who gets him on their trivia team...

I'm glad to have met him. A class act and an amazing source of trivia knowledge.

I always figured I'd meet him eventually.

RIP, Ed
