Ed was the greatest man that was in his family’s life. He was an amazing husband and he stepped into the role of a father when he didn’t have to be. He cared and loved his children, as his own, for 31 years. His grandkids thought the world of him and he thought the world of them. Spending time with them and taking them fishing is what put a smile on his face. He had a love for animals like no other, and he passed his love for animals to his children and grandchildren. 

Ed will be missed by his family and friends. He had a huge impact on everyone around him.
