He was bigger than life to his family and he loved them with all of his heart. His love for pestering the grandchildren will remain a cherished memory for the rest of their lives. To simply describe his personality the kids would probably say, If Mrs. Lovingly and Mr. Ornery had a son they would name him Edward Arvin. Ed was a hard working man who supported his family by working at the coal mines. He cherished his family history and often summoned the loving memories of his mother, father and siblings to share a life lesson. Along side his cherished wife Betty, they provided the family with a solid foundation to build generations to come. When Ed wasn’t working, he loved working on cars, fishing with the family, playing a game of pool with friends, or a nice competitive game of cards. He may or may not have cheated at rummy. The bottom line is, he was a family man who was fiercely loyal to those that he loved.
