Ed (Edgar) was born on March 31, 1953 in Pittsburgh, PA, the son of Edgar and Lillian (Geiger) Halloway. Ed’s father was in the Army and the family moved around as he was transferred to different bases. They lived in Kentucky before moving to Germany where they lived from 1960-1962.

The couple established their home in North Fargo. He was employed as a CNA at Moorhead Healthcare, now Golden Living Center, for more than 20 years. Fishing was one of Ed’s favorite pastimes. He was a fan of the Kentucky Wildcats basketball team, and the Buccaneers football team. Ed was known for his laugh and telling jokes. He loved to have fun with many friends and family and loved to eat. Ed was loved by many and will be greatly missed.
