Music was a huge part of Ed's personal and spiritual life. He wanted to play any and all instruments he could get his hands on. Playing the harmonica in his band Nostalgia was an important way for him to share his love of music and faith with others. Ed was an active member of Christ the King Lutheran Church, having served and volunteered in many different capacities. Ed was an incredible man who touched the lives of every single person he knew. He truly enjoyed the time he spent with his friends and family. He created life long memories for countless people and he will be missed beyond what words can express. Funeral services will be held at 1:00 PM on Wednesday, July 2, 2014 at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Cumming, GA, the Rev. Dr. James A. Clark, officiating. Ed was always growing in his faith and encouraging others to do the same, so in lieu of flowers the family respectfully requests memorials to Christ the King Lutheran Church Library fund.
