As recently as May of this year, he was out in the field planting corn for the deer. He was also an avid hunter, an accomplished furniture maker and a problem solver. He was a man of great integrity, wisdom and strong faith.
He was a faithful servant and member of the First United Methodist Church in Chaffee for over 60 years. He held various leadership positions on the Administrative Board, taught Sunday School, led the Methodist Men, and served faithfully on the Board of Trustees. He helped shape the life and fabric of the church. Ed served on the Chaffee General Hospital Development Board for many years. He was a member of the Gideons International Bible Society.

daughter, Suzie Eachus Glaus.
