He attended the University of Utah and graduated from the law school in 1951 with a JD degree. Ed practiced law in Salt Lake City for nearly 60 years. He had a passion for the law and took up the cause whenever he saw a case of injustice. He was a member of Sherman Christensen Inns of Court. Family came first in Ed's life. His children and grandchildren especially enjoyed his scones at Christmas, homemade bread, ski days and just spending time with Grandpa. Many of us were recipients for his freshly baked bread.
