Born in Levittown, New York, in 1951, Ed found his way to West Virginia via Salem College and began teaching in schools in Doddridge and Wirt Counties. He then became a Uniserv consultant with the West Virginia Education Association and later, after retirement, began working in a similar capacity with the Ohio Education Association. Ed passed away in February 2013.
"Ed loved boating, travel, food, and fun," said Brenda. "He had a special love and affection for animals, and he was a generous friend. Ed wanted to have an ongoing way to support animals. With a fund through the Community Foundation, we can honor Ed's wishes, and, as Ed's friends, it provides us with an ongoing cause to support in his memory."
