    Sad news. Ed Wright, member of the 1976 USA Olympic Team is in Hospice. There is a gofund page to help with final expenses. Any donation, small or large would be appreciated. To make a donation, please go to

    Does anyone know where Ed died? The Olympic historians would like to know the city for their biographical records. They already have that he was born 21 July 1949 in Brooklyn, New York City.

    According to an update on the GoFundMe, the memorial is in Cincinnati, Ohio, so maybe that's where he passed away.

    That's where he lived and taught. Usually memorials and even funerals are held where most convenient to those most likely to attend.
