Ed retired from the Air Force as a Lt. Colonel in 1973. Ed and Marilyn had 10 children and after his retirement from the Air Force, settled in Bountiful, Utah. Ed then worked for U&I Sugar and Sperry (Univac) until he fully retired in 1993. Ed was an adventurer and loved the outdoors. He enjoyed spending time with his family camping and skiing. He also enjoyed stamp collecting, genealogy, photography, gardening, traveling, and snorkeling – he and Marilyn made 28 trips to Hawaii!
