Edgar and Ruth lived in the Town of Sheboygan Falls for 36 years on a farm which they owned and operated for about 20 years. For 25 years, Edgar was employed by the United States Postal Service as a Rural Mail Carrier, until he retired in 1980.

Edgar was a member of St. Luke Lutheran Church in Sheboygan Falls, the National Rural Letter Carriers Association, The American Legion Post 149, American EX-Prisoners of War, and the Senior Center of Sheboygan Falls.
