    I loved Edgar he was a good person. I loved the pics he shared of his kayaking and the scenery where he was hiking. He will be missed and his devotion to God was very apparent when he would post on FB. God Bless you all and so sorry for your loss.

    So sorry to hear about the passing of Edgar. You and your family have my deepest of sympathy. Edgar and I became friends back in our Belleville days. Many sweet memories of our group campouts at Buck’s lake, visiting him in Colorado and his SIU days, when he was a forestry major. It has been fun reconnecting with each other on FB. Edgar was an inspirational person with his positive attitude and courage facing the many health issues that was given to him in the past two years. Cheers to Edgar, with a life well lived! You will be deeply missed, but forever in our hearts❤️
