He was born and raised in Barron, WI. Edward moved his family to Rockford, IL. Retired after a long career with Sundstrand. He was a Navy veteran of WWII.

In his retirement years, he and his wife enjoyed making crafts and traveling in their 5th wheel. His easy manner, quiet sense of humor, and soft spoken words, will be memories to be treasured. Edward will be deeply missed.
