Ed was born in San Diego on October 6, 1954, his father Jim (in the Marine Corp. at the time) and mother (Alice) were also lifelong Alaskans.

He lived in Ketchikan until 1968 and went to High School in Juneau, where he remained until the mid 1970's. The remainder of his life was spent in the Wasilla and Anchorage areas.

He belonged to Alaska Laborer's Union and worked on several projects in the Anchorage area, to include Springhill Elementary School, Chinook Elementary School, East High School and Nicholas Begich Middle School. He also worked on the original Trans-Alaska Pipeline project. In Juneau he helped construct both the Mendenhall Valley Sewage Treatment Plant and a phase of the Snettisham Hydroelectric Plant. He retired in 2012.

Eddie is survived and loved very, very, much by his brother and sister-in-law, Mike and Linda; nephews and their spouses, Scott (Lori), Ronnie (Dominque), and Mikey; grand-nieces, Corina, Courtney, Sydney and Karlie.
