He transferred to Corvallis in 1952, taking his wife Jean (Domaschovsky) and their two sons, Brian and Randy with him. He and Jean later divorced. As his career with Willamette Industries took shape, he moved to Salem, McMinnville, Redmond, Albany and finally to Sweet Home where he lived until his death. Ed retired from Willamette Industries in 1989 after 43 years of service. He enjoyed his job and worked hard. He also played hard.

In 1972, he married Elma Jean (Lovely-Kyriss) in a ceremony in Hawaii and became father to her two sons, Brad and Jeff Kyriss. Ed loved going to Hawaii each year to celebrate their anniversary. He enjoyed traveling and computers and mapped out travel plans for their motor home trips. Ed was a great organizer for fundraisers or ‘fun’raisers.

He was a life member of BPOE. Ed received Sweet Home Jaycees Boss of the Year award 1979-1980 and received Sweet Home First Citizen award in 1981. He was on Sweet Home Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for three years and was active on Highway 20 Committee.
