Edward J. “Ed” Winter, 70, of Garden City, died Tuesday, July 8, 2014, at 5:59 p.m. Ed was born Jan. 21, 1944, in the back of a hearse near Trenton to Fredrick William and Christina Mae (Compton) Winter. He was united into marriage with his wife, Frannie, of nearly 50 years on Jan. 31, 1965.
Ed was an Eagle Scout and a member of the Tribe of Mic-O-Say. He attended Schuyler School and graduated from Harrisonville High School in 1962. He attended college at Central Missouri State University and Arkansas PolyTech College. He then entered the workforce working for Gulf Chemical Company and PBI-Gordon Corporation.

Ed enjoyed spending time with family and friends, as well as being in the outdoors, spending much time tending to his yard, camping with friends and family and with his dogs.
