Ed was a devoted husband and father and loving and caring brother and uncle. He enjoyed going to Colts games, hand gun target shooting and working in the yard. Ed's biggest passion was sharing his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and being a positive role model for others. His integrity and support of his family and friends was unwavering. At the end of Ed's life he was 100% confident he was going to be in heaven with the Lord and family members that passed before him. At the end he was only concerned about others left behind and their pain.

Ed will truly be missed by his family and all of those who were blessed to have been a part of his life.
