Ed grew up in Libertyville, IL. He was involved in Track and Field and helping his father in his rose garden. Ed liked driving fast cars when he was young and loved his dogs Rowdy and Misty. Growing up Ed enjoyed visiting historical sites across America, camping fishing and hunting with his family when he was young. He never lost the desire for seeing our beautiful country and camping. Our favorite areas to visit was the Rocky Mountains of South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana. We loved camping in National Parks, four wheeled in the highlands of a ranch, and drove though small streams where a bridge was out. Ed served in the U.S. Air Force in the early 60's as an Air Craft Mechanic. Ed liked working with his hands. He was a plastic injection molding technician and supervisor prior to retiring. He also enjoyed small engine and motorcycle repair. Ed was always getting calls from friends and friends of friends all times of the year to help someone with their lawn mowers, ATV's or snow blowers. It was nice to never have a problem with our lawn mower. He would keep them running well. One of Ed's most favorite pastimes was visiting with his friends for coffee at "the Table of Wisdom" at the Busy Bee in Wonder Lake. Ed would sometimes come home with a funny store or joke that he heard at the Table and share them.
