Ed was not only a great employee of Hunter Oil but an admired individual by everyone he worked with. Always with a positive attitude and a great example to the younger employees. Ed had a wonderful way of expressing himself. Very sincere and thorough and always considerate towards everyone. Ed came to Hunter Oil late in his working career but we hired Ed for not only his working skills but for his incredible example to others of how to live life as a good person. I loved Ed Taylor!
