He was a salesman all his life, selling everything from Fuller Brushes to insurance and investments. Ed met Agnes at Vancouver MB Church. They joined the Ambassadors choir, which Ed later led. They regularly sang at Union Gospel Mission. Ed also sang in the Fraserview and Welshmen’s choirs. In the 1970s, Ed received his real estate licence and worked for Block Bros. Realty. When Agnes became ill in the late 1970s, Ed cared for her until her death. He married Anne, and they travelled in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A and Canada. When Anne grew ill, they moved to Elim Christian Village, Surrey, B.C., in 2014, and Ed took care of her. Ten months after her death, he died of congestive heart failure.
