Edward grew up and graduated from Nashwauk-Keewatin High School in 1965 and began to continue his education at LeTourneau University, Longview, Texas. He completed his education at the University of Minnesota graduating with honors.  After graduation Edward worked in the Cities, and then returned to Nashwauk to be employed at National Steel Pellet Plant as a plant operator.  His employer transferred Edward to Turkey through Bong Mining Co. along with another transfer (with his family joining him) to Monrovia, Liberia, which employment ended when civil war erupted.

He played Bass guitar with brother Bob, brother David and friends in rock-n-roll band.
