We would love it if you would share your stories or memories about our dad.
Eddie Walner is legendary within my family. Charlene and I met Eddie 50 years ago when I was hired by Honeywell. Ed was a salesman in the Dallas office and we became instant friends. Eddie was outrageously irreverent and over the top funny. Everybody that knew him loved the fact Ed always had a joke sheet in his wallet that contained nothing but punchlines to jokes. If you asked Ed for a joke he would look at his list, see a punchline and let her rip. He knew hundreds of jokes just by reading punchlines! …and his timing and delivery were always spot on. Ed was family. He was always terrific company at Thanksgiving and Easter before moving to Oklahoma to be closer to his kids and grandkids. Even after moving he would come to Dallas to see his doctor. He would always drop by to share a “Gar and a Cocktail”. We would all sit out in our cabana, drink waay too much and reminisce. We’d go inside and Ed would sleep on the couch. Before we would wake up the next morning – Ed would get up, fold sheets and blankets neat as a pin, and head back to Oklahoma. We are so sorry we lost Ed sooner than we would have chosen but his memory will always burn brightly in our hearts and in our home. We love you Ed.
