Then AC Electric hired him back as a subcontractor for mark outs. Everyone knew him with his signature style: cowboy hat, western wear and boots. A wonderful family man, caring, supportive and a hard worker as he had a “Git ‘er done” attitude. Ed was a man’s man and a proud man. He was always ready with a smile and a helping hand.
