An Army Veteran of the Korean War, Ed received his B.A. from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts. He moved to Meriden in 1962 with the love of his life, Elaine.

Ed served as Assistant Comptroller and then as the first Finance Director for the City of Meriden for close to forty years. In retirement, he served as Treasurer for the Meriden Municipal Federal Credit Union.
