Although we have seen Edgar infrequently in the past few years, he has always had a special place in our hearts. We will never forget the kindness he and Eleanor showed us through the years, especially when we were a young married couple. He was a kind gentle soul who dearly loved his family. Our love and prayers are with you at this time. We love you all.

My uncle Edgar was one the kindest and most gentle people I’ve ever known. He helped me through a particularly tough time in my life and made me feel I had a place I could go if the world caved in on me. I shall always feel great full to him for that. Rest In Peace.
