Ed graduated from Arnold High school in Lower Burrell, PA, in 1957 and enlisted in the Army in 1959. Later he began his career with the telecommunications industry, located mostly on the East coast. He started out with AT&T and ended with Verizon, in VA, for a total of 40 years. At that point he retired and moved to South Carolina, living in Myrtle Beach and finally Bluffton.

Ed was a very devout man and loved and lived his Christian faith. He was an active member of a church every place he lived and volunteered in so many areas. He was always ready to help, with a smile!
