Sept 12, 1939 – March 29, 2016

For several years, he served as part of the Color Guard in the Salute to Veterans at Scottish Fest USA, over Memorial Day weekend, at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, where he will be accorded honors this year.
Ed wrote several excellent historical novels over the past few years, all of which are available through Amazon. He held a PhD in engineering, and taught at university level, as well as working in the private sector.
His first book was entitled ‘Legacy of Honor’; a fitting one, for such a gallant gentleman.
Ed was a devoted husband, father, and friend.
