The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to stand in silent honor and respect for Edward A. Byland, 86 U.S. Airforce veteran for his final services.

Ed was a graduate of East Liverpool High School, and he was a proud United States Air Force veteran, serving in Germany.

He retired from AT&T after many years of service because he was going to be a proud grandpa and he wanted to spend more time with Katie.  He was a member of Faith Community Church, and the American Legion Post #121 and VFW Post #6450 in Chester. You could count on Ed to be at the VFW every morning enjoying a cup of coffee and then he would head out for his morning walk through Chester.

He enjoyed spending time with his family, and he was the one person that you could always depend on. You never had to ask Ed to do something he just did it and was honored to have done it.
