Ed Spain, a TASO Football and Fort Worth Chapter member for
20+ years passed away on June 17, 2016. Ed was in a truck accident in February
and throughout his recovery additional health issues came up. The doctors
discovered a cancerous tumor at the base of his brain stem that was inoperable.
The type of cancer is extremely rare in adults and usually strikes children.
The doctors suspect that there could have been some encapsulation of the tumor
that the accident disrupted. In spite of Ed’s aggressive attempts at rehab from
the accident he couldn’t outpace the tumor.
