Edward was born on February 17, 1961 in Hannibal, Missouri to Jack and Joyce Walker. In 1980, Edward and his brother, Dan, moved to Kirksville, MO to attend Truman State University. After receiving his bachelor’s degree, he moved to the Kansas City area, where he began working for MODOT. Edward was very witty and had a great sense of humor, making friends everywhere he went.

Edward was often found soaking up the sun in his pool along with his golden retrievers, neighbors and friends.
