Ed was a proud Veteran, having served his nation as a Medic in the United States Army, during the Vietnam war. He was a member of the DAV, the Vernon Hill Post in Worcester, and the Charles F. Thomas, IV Post in Palm Bay.
Ed worked as a painter for the City of Worcester for many years, before retiring in 1979. He enjoyed fishing, golf, and tennis. During his retirement he made many friends in Florida, especially in Key West, where he was nicknamed "Sunset Eddie", because of his regular presence during the Sunset Festivals. He was also known around Worcester as "Mugsy". He was a fun-loving, live and let live kind of guy, who wasn’t shy to tell you what was on his mind.
