It is with a very heavy heart that we report that Ed Lump passed away on October 11, 2021.
Ed was a strong leader and a passionate advocate for the restaurant industry. He served as WRA's President & CEO for 36 years until he retired in 2018. He also served as past chair of the WRA board of directors and as a board member.
He has inspired the respect of so many and leaves behind a remarkable legacy. Through it all, no one could mistake his love for the restaurant and hospitality industry, his love for his job and his love for his family.
Please join us in sending prayers to his wife, Susan, and their entire family at this difficult time. May he rest in peace and memory be eternal.
Ed's family plans to hold a private memorial service. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Wisconsin Restaurant Association Education Foundation Ed & Susan Lump Endowment Fund
