Ed was a member of Ashley Baptist Church and enjoyed work, gardening and family. He had a wonderful sense of humor, enjoyed coffee at McDonalds in the morning and was a good Christian man.

Edward is loved and survived by his sons, John (Joan) Stremler of Holland, Douglas Kooiman of Twin Lake, David (Beverly) Kooiman of Saranac, Michael (Kimberly) Kooiman of Belding, Matthew (Michelle) Kooiman of Lowell and Neal (Dawn) Kooiman of Cedar Springs; 23 grandchildren and many great grandchildren; and his siblings, Keith (Joann) Kooiman of Middleville, Martin Kooiman of Lowell, and Elenor Kruger of Colorado.
