KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Big Ed's Pizza has been an eating tradition for families for a couple of generations, but the passing of its owner David Neusel has left a big void in the hearts of many East Tennesseans.
Neusel passed away Tuesday of heart and kidney failure due to a virus that settled in, and weakened, his heart about 2 years ago.
