He started working for his Uncle Claude at Ace Radiator starting in the late 60s and then purchased the shop in 1972 where he worked until he retired.

Ed enjoyed cars and racing. He and his brother raced at Black Hills Speedway in the 60s and 70s then revisited it in the early 90s. He would enjoy taking drives with his wife in their 41 Studebaker and the 55 Chevy.
Ed loved life and even more he loved his family. He always made himself available to his grandkids, nieces and nephews. He had made numerous friends in his 69 years and many he stayed in contact with.
Ed will be missed and remembered always.
