Tuesday, November 27, 2018, in Ninnekah.
 Ed grew up and attended schools in Texas and Oklahoma. He

him down. He worked at his father's service station, in roofing,
and was an excellent mechanic. Edgar married Joyce McKinney on

daughters: Karen, Sharon, twins, Karla and Sharla, and his baby,

passion for kids which is what started his popsicle route. After

popsicles, which turned into a two mile, 20 to 40 popsicle a day
route. That route was his priority for many years; come 3:30, he
was out the door, and everything else was forgotten until he was
back in his recliner at 5:00 o'clock. He lived for that route and he
has missed the kids terribly since he hasn't been able to get out.
