He was a 1964 graduate of Bristolville High School. He proudly served in the Navy during Vietnam on the USS Independence.
He married Constance Beckner on June 14, 1969, in Braceville. They shared a beautiful life together, raising their family in Champion, Ohio.
He worked as a millwright at Packard Electric for over 30 years, forming lifelong friendships with many of his coworkers.
Edward was known for his friendly personality and infectious smile. He lived his life to the fullest through simple pleasures like dinner with family, coffee with friends, and playing cards with anyone. He loved the outdoors. He spent many hours on his boat on local lakes and especially enjoyed perch and walleye seasons on Lake Erie. His favorite memories were camping in the mid-west and along the east coast. He loved floating down a river, sitting by a campfire, and watching ocean waves. He affectionately spent many winter months in Florida.

Peabody of Texas; his brother-in-law, Larry Beckner of Howland and his sisters-in-law, Susan (Bud) Precht of Frostburg, MD and Lori (Kevin) Harford of Leavittsburg; and many beloved nieces and nephews.
