Edward spent his entire career at Bausch and Lomb; where he was the Glass Plant manager. He moved to Florida after his retirement where he loved to go bowling. He was intelligent, athletic and strong yet he was a sweet man. He never complained about anything; instead he was concerned about the well-being of others. He was a great friend and playmate to his four grandchildren who will always remember his sense of humor. He was loved by everyone he met and will be missed.
