When Gregory closed its doors he attended Rogue Community College where he studied Respitory Therapy. He ultimately started working for DCS in Grants Pass, where he made some lifelong friendships. He retired in 2019.
He was an avid fisherman, and enjoyed hunting. He loved cooking and was excellent at it. One if his favorite traditional dishes he made was Nori Maki (California Rolls), which he learned from his mother and then passed onto his girls.
He attended the Assembly of God Church, and loved Jesus Christ. Edward was a loving family man, never hesitating to let us know how much he loved us.
