Edward was a 1942 graduate of Muncy High School. He served honorably during World War II in the United States Army Air Force (now under the United States Air Force branch). He would later retire as a Vice President and General Manager from Koppers, Muncy.
Edward was a longtime, active member of Grace Baptist Church, Muncy, where he served as a Deacon and lent his time and talents to many projects over the years. Edward was also a member of Gideon’s International.
Earlier in life he was an avid golfer and car enthusiast for many years. He also enjoyed maintaining his home and kept a lovely yard.

Edward was a wonderful man, a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend. He will be greatly missed, but his family and friends are comforted to know he will spend eternity with Jesus.
The family would like to thank Celebration Villa of Loyalsock, and their staff, for their loving care of Ed and Lola for the last years of their lives. They also thank hospice of UPMC and all the dear friends who visited him over many years.
The family gratefully acknowledges Becky Berninger for her selfless devotion to Ed and Lola for 20 plus years. No one could ask for a better friend.
