Ed worked in the coal mines, No. 12 and Lingan Mine for 37 years. He was an avid dart shooter; playing in many leagues over the years. He was a wonderful carpenter. His cupboards and vanities grace many homes in the area.

Besides his parents, Eddie was predeceased by a daughter in infancy, three brothers, Clarence, Jim and Johnny as well as five sisters, Dorothy, Mildred, Pearl, Ruth and Shirley.
