For 22 1/2 years, Edward worked at the Prentiss County School District bus shop where he dedicated himself to ensuring the safe transportation to the children of the Prentiss County School District until he retired.
He enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, gardening, raising corn and watermelons and watching over the woods that surrounded him. He enjoyed nature, his dogs and riding his fourwheeler. He enjoyed people and people enjoyed his dry humor. He also enjoyed sitting on his front porch with his wife watching the hummingbirds. Edward made friends everywhere he went and the friendships he made lasted the rest of his life.
