Ed attended Holy Trinity Elementary School and North Dallas High School, graduating in 1935. He graduated from Texas A&M in 1939 with a BS in Chemical Engineering. While at A&M, Ed was recognized as an Outstanding Student, Company Commander, and was a member of Tau Beta Pi.
Ed worked for Magnolia Petroleum before entering the Army as a 2nd Lieutenant, where he studied radar at Harvard, MIT, and the Royal Air Force in Canada. His World War II experience took him to Florida, Alaska, and the Aleutian Islands, and was honorably discharged as a Captain, remaining in the Army Reserves until 1958.

After his discharge he returned to Magnolia and shortly thereafter moved to Chevron. His career with Chevron took him to Natchez MS, Ruston LA, Houston TX, Perth West Australia, Maracaibo Venezuela, and to Midland TX, where he retired after 33 years. He was a registered Professional Engineer.
Retirement took Ed back to Dallas, where he worked as a consultant in the oil and gas field for several years. Ginny and Ed spent many wonderful years travelling throughout the world until they moved to The Waterview on Lake Granbury.
