Edward "Ed" Alvin Culin

March 18, 1934January 25, 2020

Edward Alvin Culin, 85, of Little Rock went to be with the Lord on January 25th, 2020. He was born March 18th, 1934 in Boone County, Arkansas to Maymie Boo Dreher and John Edward Culin.

Edward had a love for cars and started Superior Paint and Body Service in 1969. He spent his life doing auto body repair and lots of church volunteer service. He loved using his handy skills to build churches around the United States. When it came to cars, there wasn’t much he couldn’t fix or repair. He enjoyed time with his wife, Emma Lou, travelling in their RV and site seeing together.

He is preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife of 65 years: Emma Lou Culin; his daughter: Theresa (Dion) Simpson; his grandsons: Aaron (Allison) Simpson, and Nick (Brandi) Simpson; his granddaughter: Jennifer (Andrew) Ferguson; and his six great-grandchildren: Will, Eli, Ryan, Olivia, Emma June and Leah

Ed’s family would like to acknowledge and thank Mt. Carmel Assisted Living Facility, Manor Assisted Living Facility, and Encore Healthcare for their loving care.
