He was an automobile mechanic and received numerous awards and citations for his excellence in this field. He was a Master Craftsman Mechanic.

He could build anything...remodel any house... no project was too hard for him to tackle. Carpentry, electrical, plumbing, engines, motors...he could do it all and do it well.

He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather. Ask any of them and they will recount all the amazing Disney trips everyone enjoyed because of him.

His kindness, patience and love showed in everything he said and did.

Ed's memorial service will be held at the Benton Seventh Day Adventist Church, Highway 411 in Benton on November 5 at 2 pm. Friends and family are invited to attend Ed's Celebration Of Life.

He is sleeping in Jesus...his life surrendered to Him. He is gone but never forgotten, and always will be loved and his memory cherished by his whole family.

Rest in peace my beloved husband. I will always love you.
