61 after a long illness.

countless other family and friends who have passed before him.
Ed grew up in Sun Valley where he attended Roscoe Elementary School, Sun Valley Jr
High (where he met Alita) and briefly attended Polytechnic High School before moving
After graduating from Palmdale High School in 1979, Ed worked for Rockwell and
Boeing and developed an appreciation for aerospace, but it was his work with Wilson
Ambulance that was special. He strongly believed in helping people in difficult
circumstances, a practice he continued throughout his life. Ed later worked in the office furniture industry for Office Interiors Plus, Environments Plus and Staples Business Systems as a project manager.
As a member of Grace Chapel church in Lancaster, CA, Sunday was his favorite day.
Ed's strong faith in God and wonderful sense of humor were with him until the end. His
love for his wife was infinite and was displayed in countless ways throughout their life
together. He loved riding his Harley Davidson, the Dallas Cowboys, playing guitar in
praise bands, participating in charities and outreach programs.
