Coming to us from Penn Charter in Philadelphia, he was active in student government and president of his class. He earned varsity letters in basketball and track, and captained the football team. At Princeton, he majored in basic engineering, lettered in track, and was Princeton’s 90th football captain. He was also a Chapel deacon and a member of Tiger Inn.
Following graduation, he served on active duty as a Marine Corps pilot from 1962 to 1967, including a tour in Vietnam. By our 10th reunion, he had married Ellen Baker. He later earned an executive MBA from Pace University. During his career, he worked in increasingly responsible human resources positions at Pfizer, Kidder Peabody, and Salomon Brothers, from which he retired in 1995. His wife, Ellen, died in a car accident in 1985. After retirement, Ed managed the career of his son, Erik, who had been blind since age 13, and had become a noted mountain climber and motivational speaker.
In 2001, Ed married Mariann Dahl and they moved to Amelia Island, Fla. The class extends its sympathy to Mariann, sons Eddi and Erik, stepson Curtis, and 10 grandchildren.
