Ed was preceded in death by his first wife, Helen Stewart Partridge, three grandsons, Brad S., Michael, and Justin. The last of his family, he was also preceded in death by siblings, Gladys Noles, Louise Sewell and Calvin Partridge.
Our dear father and grandfather deserves a tribute, but in this unknown time of the CoVID-19 pandemic, funeral services will be private. Please be with us in prayer.

My deepest condolences to all of you. It was an absolute pleasure and honor to have known Ed and his Family, you all will remain a part of my heart for an eternity ❤️
We will miss him dearly but know he is in heaven. I was glad to have known him and he reminded me so much of my own Grandfather. He was at our wedding and I don’t think I ever saw him stop smiling. That’s how we will remember him. Prayers and love always. – Bill, Sarah, Luke and Dennis
To all of Ed’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Ed was always a favorite relative of mine. I used to stop in his store on my way home from Lincoln High School and he would always smile and chat with me. I know my Mom, Margaret Partridge Vogler loved him dearly and now they’re together. I’m so sorry to hear of his loss. The family is in our prayers during this difficult time. — Ron and Diana Vogler Benoit
