Our condolences to his family and all who knew him. One couldn't ask for a nicer neighbor whose kindness will always be remembered. Ed and June welcomed us to the neighborhood in the 80's and we have fond memories of them both. A true gentleman, a superb gardener and just an overall really nice man, may he rest in peace.

Rebecca Fischer

I was so saddened to hear of Mr. Moorheads passing. I delivered Meals on Wheels with my daughters for 2 years and he was always the highlight of our deliveries. He was kind, thoughtful and always pleasant with my daughters. They always looked forward to seeing him and I enjoyed hearing stories of his travels, his love of football and his hunting expeditions. We were so sad to hear of his stroke. He touched our hearts and he will be missed. Please accept our deepest sympathies at this difficult time. Sincerely, Rebecca, Jordan and Lauren Fischer

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Moorhead in 1991. I prepared his income tax return for the past 18 years. In that time, I became very friendly with Mr. Moorhead and enjoyed his company immensly. My mom, who helps me during tax season, and I always looked forward to him coming into the office. He reminded me so much of my own grandpap that I really became quite fond of his visits and conversation. A very sad day for me as I read his obituary. May you rest in peace Mr. Moorhead, you will be sadly missed. God Bless You.

Thomas C Lawton

I join with so many others, especially from all of the nieces and nephews in offering our deepest sympathy on Uncle Ed's passing. Although it is little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that in his passing you can celebrate the end of a very long and productive life.

The outpouring of sorrow demonstrates how many people Uncle Ed has touched in his life. The sadness of his passing was even being expressed on Facebook yesterday! Uncle Ed recently talked about talked about the things that made him happy like playing Santa Claus for the kids while Aunt June drove him around and how he enjoyed teasing the girls about having boyfriends.

Please find peace and comfort in knowing that his loss is felt by all who knew and loved him.

In sympathy, a nephew,

Tom Lawton
