Ed was a man of action and a man of the outdoors. In the prime of his life, he was an outstanding employee and a well- respected member of the community. He was noted for community service and won an award from Easter Seals of Southwest Georgia for organizing their annual golf tournament fund raiser.
Because of the Corona virus, no service will be held at this time. The family hopes to have a memorial service at a later date.
