He was graduated from Carmel schools. Ed served proudly in the US Army enlisting in 1965. He was deployed to Germany for several years, was a combat veteran of the Vietnam War, and was the recipient of our Nation’s Purple Heart. He retired from the Maine Army National Guard in 1995 with nearly 30 years of service. Ed was a long-time employee of the Dead River Co. and was known as the company “gas” man. His service lasted 44 years. He was also employed later in life by Dysarts for many years. He very much enjoyed spending time with family, visiting friends, cookouts, mowing grass & riding his John Deere tractor, taking his grandchildren and their friends to Dysarts for treats, tinkering in his shed, snowmobile club dinners, and going to camp at Oxbrook Lake with friends Ivan, Douglas, Bruce, Bill, Tom, Aaron, Josh, Kevin, Roger, Mike, & Rudi. Ed is survived by Glenda, his wife of 39 years, along with 5 children that include daughters Sonya & Daisy and sons Billy, Jimmy, & Shane.
