After graduating in 1948, Ed worked the tugboats that frequented the Skagit River and followed that work to Alaska where he worked on the pipelines. In 1972, Ed moved to Snohomish, WA where his experience at the Courier Times led him to become part owner of the Snohomish Tribune and Snohomish Publishing Co. He retired in 1996 as president of Snohomish Publishing Co. Ed was a member of the Jaycees and the Lions Club and enjoyed participating in the many ways those clubs helped serve the community.

I am so sorry for the loss Ed's family is experiencing. Ed, I will miss you dearly. As both a fellow Lion and as a friend. You mentored me well in the Snohomish Lions Club and I appreciate all that you taught me. Thank you for just being you.

Ed was a smart and savvy businessman. His word was his bond. I enjoyed his friendship and his great sense of humor. He taught me, his attorney, a great deal about how to be both strong and fair.
