Hi Janet; I am Gary Lape, oldest son of Kelly Lape. I guess that makes us first cousins. I know Ed's and Otis's kids but a can't recall meeting you. I do have some geneology info on the Lape family, but I can't offer any detail on Grandad, except that my Dad hated him when he divorced and remarried. Kelly was forced out of the home in Hood River (house still there) when he was 16 or 17 and he never once spoke of his parents to me. He died an angry man. I visited with Otis in Yahats (SIC) Oregon a year before before he died. I'm aware of the story of Ed Lape dying in preparation for his honeymoon with second wife. I'll find the history file I developed and forward it on to you.
