Ed had a career with IBM for 30 years at a time when technology was being introduced to the world and was instrumental in developing the technological devices and conveniences we enjoy today. He worked on computers that would fill a large room.
Ed was always fixing or building something. He made a stereo and built his own first color TV. He even built a kit car; a Bradley GT2. He added a family room and garage to their original home and then 2 additional bedrooms.
Ed served in the Air Force for four years during the Korean War. He set up radio towers in Greenland and was able to travel to many parts of the world.
For over 50 years, Ed and Gladys enjoyed being at their property outside of Wright City. There they built a log cabin and enjoyed nature. Their love of the outdoors led them to turn their property into a Conservation Easement, ensuring the land would be preserved for years to come.
Woodworking became an important hobby after retirement. He used his skills to make beds, cabinets, tables, chairs, clocks, toys and many other beautiful pieces and gifts.
