He was a past member of Calvary Independent Baptist Church in Saltillo. There he accepted the Lord as his savior and was baptized. He later attended the First Church of Christ, Shippensburg, PA.
Ed was a loyal and true friend and loved his family without reservation. Ed loved to play video games, puzzles, work on cars and help people solve their problems. He could fix almost anything. Children loved Ed as did animals because of his kind and gentle nature.
Ed always said, "I want to make a difference in someone's life." Whether or not he knew this, he made a difference in most of the lives of people he came in contact with. He did this by giving of his time, energy, knowledge and caring. You could call Ed anytime and he was always willing to go the extra mile to help with any problem. He didn't just listen, he heard what you were saying and had the ability to make you feel what you were saying was important. He enjoyed teaching and showing others so they could help themselves. He said, "Give a man a fish and he can eat today; teach a man to fish and he can eat the rest of his life." His kind and loving spirit was proof of his goodness.
His presence here on earth will be missed by all who loved him, but God has gained a strong and loyal warrior.
