Jan. 30, 1928 – Nov. 29, 2012
“He made a great Manhattan.”
Ed Eason was born in Binghamton, N.Y., on Jan. 30, 1928, and died peacefully in Vacaville, on Nov. 29, 2012. He was 84 years old.
Ed was married to Norma in 1960. This union was very loving and lasted until Ed’s death.
He received a B.S. degree in 1951 from Trenton State College. Upon graduation, he was inducted into the U.S. Army, where he was assigned as a military instructor until 1953.
Ed was employed as an industrial engineer in the prefabricated housing industry, then aerospace manufacturing and finally consumer and business electronic products. He retired in 1985.
He relocated to Davis in 2000 where he became affiliated with various social clubs. He really appreciated living in close proximity to his family, which included his daughter Pam Cordano, her husband Tom, and two granddaughters, Lauren and Sarah.
Ed’s lifelong interest had been with exotic full classic cars such as majestic Duesenbergs, exquisite Bugattis and stately 12-cylinder senior Packards, to name a few, all manufactured prior to World War II.
In lieu of a memorial service, there will be a Manhattan party to celebrate his life. Friends can expect an invitation.
