Edwin was the longtime owner of EDE Masonry. He worked hard his entire life. His priority was caring for his family. He also used his talents as a member of St. Veronica Parish. Though he did not often talk about it, he was a proud Korean War Veteran.
The family thanks the staffs at Compassus Hospice for their support over the past year and Creekside Manor for their great caregiving the past seven months.
It was a family tradition at Christmas not to exchange gifts but instead pool their funds. Ed and Dorothy would then donate them to an organization supporting families in need. In lieu of flowers, the family would be honored if you memorialized Ed by contributing to a charity of your choice.
