Ed Vidler, founder of Vidler's 5 & 10 in East Aurora, has passed away at the age of 90.

According to the store's Facebook page, "Kind, humble, polite, optimistic and always ready with a really bad pun or corny joke, dad wouldn't want us to mourn but to celebrate what he considered his wonderful life."

The original "Vidler on the Roof," it's Ed's visage that remains overlooking the classic five and dime.
