Edward T. Pound (Ed), age 77, passed away peacefully at his home in Rockville, Maryland on Sunday, July 25, 2021, surrounded by his family. Ed was the adoring husband of 58 years to Eileen Pound, doting father of his daughter Karen and her husband Mitch Weintraub, devoted Grandad to Matthew and Emily Weintraub, and an inspirational older brother to his sister Lorene Roland.
Ed was an essential part of the Protect Us Kids Board bringing his years of experience and passion for child protection advocacy. His many written and consulting contributions as well as his drive to stand up for those less fortunate or unable to, will be sorely missed.
When asked why he spent so many years working late nights and weekends burning himself at both ends for a story, Ed told his grandson Matthew, “When I think about what I do, I see myself as the eyes and ears of the little guy—the people who have no voice.” That quote perfectly embodies who Ed Pound is.
