A native of Michigan who has been in Colorado since the 50's Ed feels that almost qualifies him as a native. After a number of years in Denver in Property Management, commercial brokerage (General Manager of Fuller & Company) and Denver and resort development, he moved to Dillon in 1987. He continured working on projects in the mountains and the Denver area. Notable developments included two infill residentail projects in southeast Denver (The Cottonwoods and Gun Club Green) and the Jones Intercable headquarters at I-25 & Dry Creek Road. In the mountains he consulted on projects in Steamboat Springs and for Ralston Purina in Keystones early years after returning from two years in Montana as the first Director of Real Estate at Big Sky. His developments in Summit County include Point Dillon, the Spinnaker, Straight Creek Ponds and The Moorings in Dillon. He is an emeritus Realtor and earned the designation of Certified Property Manager (CPM) from the Instsitute of Real Estate Management (IREM-NAR).
A father of two boys (one deceased) and a girl, grandfather of four, all living in Denver, he makes many trips to cheer them on in their various athletic endeavors. After 31 years of delightful sailing on Lake Dillon, he sold his Ensign but remains contented to kayak with his wife Bonnie before the big winds kick up. Skiing remains high on his list as well as short stints on the bike path & cross country on the lake (Ice permitting). Ed and Bonnie and their two dogs live on Tenderfoot Street in Dillon.
