Thereafter, he continued his baseball career at UNC-Wilmington, where he played and coached. After graduating, he moved to Wilson and married his high school sweetheart and “love of his life,” Nora Davis.

“There, Ed continued his passion for sports at Sportsville and DSG before spending the majority of his career at EB Sports. He loved his work family and enjoyed a fulfilling career of encouraging young athletes, assisting coaches and parents, and befriending all of his customers with integrity and heart.
