They moved to Ohio, where he completed a second degree in electrical engineering and worked for several industrial firms, including Sherwin-Williams, for which he was awarded patents. He also worked for aerospace contractor TRW, where he helped design heat shields for reentry spacecraft in the Gemini and Apollo programs. Later, he was assistant director of the Johnson Space Center physical plant (Houston). He concluded his career as associate physical plant director at Texas A & M University, Prairie View A & M and TAMU Galveston. Ed was an active member of the Bryan-College Station Lions Cluband the American Legion for many years. He is survived by his daughter, Judith, son-in-law Arthur Perry, and granddaughters, Diana and Christina, the lights of his life. His beloved wife, Yolanda, predeceased him in 2014.
