He also served as an accountant for Children’s Bible Ministries, Gatlinburg, Tennessee; Camp Forest Springs, Westboro, Wisconsin; and International Messengers, Clear Lake, Iowa. Together with his wife, Ed took several missions trips to various countries around the world to share the love of Jesus. He also had a heart for those with special needs and disabilities, serving at a camp each summer and volunteering with the local Night to Shine events. Ed greatly enjoyed spending time with friends, playing cards, riding bike, studying the Bible, backyard kickball, morning coffee, leading game time for AWANA, and taking naps. Above all, spending time with his children and grandchildren brought Ed the most joy. He especially liked watching them play sports, playing games with them, and treating them to ice cream.
