Edwin H. Gardner, Jr., age 69, of McDonough, GA passed away Sunday, July 8, 2018 after a period of declining health. He had lived the last several months at Dream Catcher Farm in Jackson, GA. Ed was preceded in death by his parents, Jane Elliott Coan Gardner and Edwin H. Gardner Sr. He is survived by numerous cousins.

Ed was a volunteer fireman with the McDonough City Fire Department for many years. Because his father was a police officer, Ed was very fond of anyone in law enforcement. He was a big fan of all things John Deere. Everyone that knew him could count on seeing him either at Huddle House or Waffle House. He was an avid historian regarding anything related to McDonough and his family history. Ed was also a member of McDonough First United Methodist Church.

A Memorial Service for Ed will be held on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at 7:00 PM in the chapel of Haisten Funeral Home with Rev. Joey Seabolt officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service.
