Edwin also took great pleasure in attending his granddaughter's sporting events and spending quality time with his family. Edwin knew how to enjoy life to the fullest but was always known for his hard work and dedication, devoting 36 years to Bendix Breaks of Elmira, NY, also known as Purolator Corporation, where he sat as union president.
