Ed enjoyed playing sports in his early years; In 1949, his team, the Mansfield Police Recreation Club, won the Ohio Hot Stove Baseball State Championship! He graduated from Mansfield Senior High School in Mansfield, Ohio in 1951, where he was proud to play football for the Mansfield Tygers. He served our country as a member of the military and was a Korean War veteran. Returning home, he settled in the Cleveland area and went to work as a pressman for the Litho Color Printing Company. An expert lithographer, he became president and owner of the company before retiring. He enjoyed motor racing of all kinds and was a gifted photographer. At the age of 42 he met and fell in love with his “Lady” Linda, they were married and together they showered their blessings on their family. They loved throwing family 70s/80s dance parties, VHS movie marathons, pool parties, weekends at the Lodge, lakeside summers and beach getaways. Their hearts were huge and they were always ready to share what they had; especially Ed, who had Altoids for everyone. When Linda passed away in 2019, Ed was lost without her. It gives us great joy to know that they are with the Lord and together again.
