Edward loved the Lord and was a member at First Church of God in, Columbus Ohio. He graduated from Columbus East High School and attended CTI for Auto Mechanic and Columbus State Community College for Business Management. Edward loved driving 18-wheelers, he gained his experience by working alongside his Grandfather, Lewis in their family business, Ransom and Son. He worked various jobs and later married his soulmate, Tawndrea. They, together are entrepreneurs and own several businesses; Ransom Trucking, Our Kidz Early Childhood Center and more recently, Our Kids Child Development Center. Edward made many lifetime relationships with the families we served. Edward never stood defeated, he’d take on any challenge and conquer it! He was festinated with the thrill of life. He would socially engage in any setting and he made a everlasting impression on everyone he met. We could count on him and his coordinated suits to make a everlasting fashion impression at any event. He had a naked eye, and capture any and every moment, he loved photography! He’d capture all things and they were beautiful!
Edward was passionate about his wife, there is not one thing he would not do for her, all his children, grandchildren and family. He loved motorcycles, singing, dancing, playing pool, joking around and fast cars. He fulfilled many of his bucket list items, flying on a airplane, international trip to Jamaica and he recently learned to play the Bass guitar. Edward made it his life’s work to fix anything, big or small.
We will forever remember your Gulash, Ketchup and Ranch combination on pizza. Edward is loved and missed by us all.
