Edward Davidson, Esq.

At 5:38 am, Dec 7th 2018, Edward Davidson Esq. of Easton CT passed peacefully into heaven beside the love of his life, Tonja Walker-Davidson. Ed and Tonja's marriage in 1997 moved her to Ohio where she and Ed were blessed with two daughters Isabella Grace and Abrianna Elaine. Tonja’s love for Connecticut began in 1992, when she bought her first house in Ridgefield. Moving her family back in 2006, the girls attended Ridgefield Academy prior to their move to Easton in 2011. They then attended Helen Keller Middle School and Joel Barlow High School. Ed and Tonja loved Ridgefield and Easton and their friends there. They often spent winters in Palm Desert CA.
Ed Davidson was a force in Cleveland business and philanthropy for most of his life. A successful entrepreneur, best known for his work in the relocation business, Ed was CEO of Cooperative Resource Services, which at one time was the largest privately held relocation company in America.
For several years, Ed and Tonja lived in Cleveland while spending time in New York and Boca Raton, Florida. Edward and Tonja were very active in Project Love, Cleveland Centers for Families and Children, United Cerebral Palsy of New York, and several other community activities wherever they lived. Edward was instrumental in developing and promoting Cleveland Sports Stars Hall of Fame, as well as The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where he served on the Board of Directors and was the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the year.
Edward courageously fought Pancreatic Cancer since 2015. Ed is survived by his 5 children, Isabella Grace (20) studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Abrianna Elaine (19) studying at Southern Methodist University, Samantha (31) of Los Angeles and a graduate of USC, Alec Davidson Esq. (20) of Climaco Law and a graduate of Michigan State University, and Evan (43) of Cleveland, Ohio.
Services will be held at Spear-Miller Funeral Home, 39 South Benson Rd in Fairfield CT, on Tuesday December 11th. Calling hours for friends and family are from 4 to 7pm with an interfaith service following, led by close family friend Rev. Doug Lebow from The High Desert Center for Spiritual Living in California. Services in Cleveland in coordination with our dear friend Stuart Musinski, his children, Alec and Samantha Davidson, and our Former Rabbi and friend Dan Roberts will be held at the Berkowitz-Kumin-Bookatz Funeral Home on Friday, December 14th at 11am. The funeral home is located at 1985 S Taylor Rd. The eulogy will be delivered by Rabbi Dan Roberts. IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING the service on Friday, the family will receive friends at the home of Stuart and Susan Muszynski 5053 Bristol Court, Lyndhurst, OH 44124 until 3 p.m.

The MOST important thing about Ed was his love for his family and his dedication to helping others. He professed and taught his children the importance of the Jewish legacy, and to strive to heal the world.
