Edward was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Colo. He enjoyed golfing, attending NASCAR races with his son, playing cards, collecting coins, deep sea fishing and was an avid hunter in his younger days.

Edward is survived by his son Robert (Edythe) Meller of Colo; grandson Bobby E. Meller and great-grandson Lane Lounsbury Meller. He was preceded in death by his parents; wife Elizabeth; daughter Linda and brother Harry Meller.
