After returning home, he and his brother Jim went into the restaurant business in Clyde, “Vic-N-Jennies for several years. In 1955, they moved to the Newark Grill, affectionately called by many “The Harvard Club” until 1977 when Urban Renewal took over the building. Ed took this opportunity to buy his first of three camper and took his family on a long cross country trip around the USA. Returning home he worked for the Newark Housing Authority. Ed loved traveling and camping and continued doing so for as long as he was able. For many years he served on the Newark Municipal Board. Ed was just honored for his sixty six years with the Newark Fire Department, Deluge Hose Company.
