In his spare time he enjoys spending it with his wife, Joanna; son, Waylon and daughter, Mia. He also like “tinkering” on anything in his garage and more recently, shooting skeet and trap at the local sportsman clubs.

 

Edd feels that he is very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to serve Morris and its surrounding areas with the same high level of service that the funeral home has always been known for.
