EJ (Earl Jefferson) Edman

EJ went home to be with Jesus on the morning of April 26, 2013. He fought the good fight, he finished the race and he kept the faith. He is survived by his loving wife, Meredith; his two sons: Eian (Chrissy) and Eric; his two daughters: Dana (Edman-Rochat) and Kayla (Wood). He is also survived by several grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. EJ loved adventure, the outdoors and camping, as well as travelling. He was committed to his Christian faith, his family and his friends. He will be remembered by all as a fun-loving, affectionate man with a wonderful sense of humor. He served his country and was proud to be American. EJ loved well and lived life to the fullest, and he will be dearly missed.
