“Steady” Ed touched the lives of millions of people from around the world. He was the father of frisbee and disc golf. He dedicated his life to spreading the joy and fun of the frisbee game and especially disc golf. His vision, enthusiasm and selflessness has given us a way of life that will endure until we come to the last disc golf hole. ~Victor Malafronte (PDGA #002)
Edward Early HeadrickJune 28,1924 – August 12, 2002
“For years, he used to joke about saying he wanted to live on as a Frisbee®.
We always thought he was joking. But he made it clear he was serious. He wanted us to use his ashes in making some Frisbees. He even said he hopes we throw them around in his honor.”
~Dan Headrick, one of “Steady” Ed’s four children
The “Steady” Ed Memorial Disc’s graphics are color stamped using a ColorMax™ process that allows the high-resolution custom color artwork prints of these unique discs to really stand out. The one of a kind artwork was created by Ed Headrick’s close friend Sharon Kinzie.
Discraft facilitated molding the Last Flight Memorial Discs and making Ed’s unique last wish to have his ashes incorporated into discs a reality. Ed’s Ashes were incorporated into a very very special blend of elite plastic into the immortal XL™ and APX™ molds.
“The Lines of Headrick” memorial disc is a very limited edition Ultrastar 175g mold carrying Ed’s ashes. “The Lines of Headrick” commemorates the life of the founder of disc sports and father of Disc Golf.
