I remember when I was little being at my Uncle Dub and Aunt Jerry Woodell's house with my grandma Betty Dawson and Edgar would show up and my sister and me would run behind my grandma because Edgar would always say "I'm taking you home with me". Later as I grew up I realized there was nothing to be afraid of. Edgar was very sweet and I loved getting to walk through his garden with him and my grandparents. Now him and my grandparents are walking through heavens garden together watching over all of us.

I loved Edgar. He made me feel safer when called to check things out. I always saw him in church on Sundays. He pulled me over just outside of Loraine for speeding and scared me straight! He may have saved my life. Him and Glenda let me clean their house sometimes for extra spending money. His son Dell was my brother’s best friend ... great man, great father, great human.

Edgar was a great man. He was admired and loved by many. As he cruised the streets of Loraine he kept the kids safe while we ran the 'busy" streets. He helped many families, without our knowledge and many times without any thanks. Today I want to thank him again. I want to thank his family for sharing him with us for so many years. Many times late into the night. Thank you Edgar, for your love. R.I.P.

Great Man with a huge heart. He genuinely cared fotall the residents of Mitchell County and especially Loraine and the teens of Loraine that were of age to be out doing our thing on weekends, he was only concerned about our safety and not sending us to jail. R.I.P. Ed!

He was a great man and good cop I cannot tell you how many times he escorted me and friends to someone house made sure we were not going to be out again and told their parents what we had done but made sure we were safe. It was better than being in real trouble but he was kind to no end. He will be missed for sure. Dad and Edgar can watch over us till it’s our time to go. RIP

Edgar was a great true and honest friend. He was a great police chief for the city of Loraine. I will sure miss my friend. Prayers to the Haltom family.

There are no words for Ed, just feelings of comfort at the thought of him.
He was my 'other daddy' and i had a great daddy b.t.w. They were from a time when honor, courtesy, chivalry, decency, heroism and comradery were Common words to describe a good man and both of those 'PawPaws' were all of those things and more to anyone that needed them to be without hesitation.
Thank you God for letting him know me. My life would have been substantially emptier if it weren't for Ed and my 'other family'. I love yall and can you just imagine how much fun him and Bill are already having up there?
