Ed was a devote member of St. John's in Kohler, serving under Fr. Louis Wilmek, Fr. Tom, Fr. Bob, Fr. Joe, and Eileen Mischock as trustee, treasurer, usher, and everything else they needed him to be. Ed was quite the character, he had an amazing sense of humor. Family was important to him and creating wonderful memories with them was his passion. Judy was his number 3, his mother came first, the church came second, and she wouldn't of wanted it any other way.
