Ed had a 27-year career in the State Department, largely with the USAID. He served 12 years in international posts, 12 more in Washington in science and technology management, then completed his foreign service in Ukraine from 1991 to 1993. Upon retirement in 1995, he and Susan settled on a rural, wooded property in remote Northwest California. There, he became adept in rural land management and thrived “off the grid” until his death Oct. 31, 2021.
The whole family were keen lifelong campers and hikers in remote and challenging places worldwide, roughly corresponding with his USAID assignments. They were also committed to the Episcopal Church, especially its role in global development. Ed is survived by his daughter, Meredith; and several grandchildren, to whom we offer our sympathies.
