Edward honorably served his country in the US NAVY. He went on to work at Kidder Press in Dover, N.H. for several years.

While providing for his family over the years he was also active in coaching youth baseball. Edward was an avid reader, gardener and loved his fishing trips to camp in Dummer, N.H. His favorite place on earth was Ireland where he visited many times over the years, connecting with long lost relatives that he stayed in touch with for decades.

His warm heart had love for those he came in touch with wherever he went, but more than anything he loved his family.
