Edd was born at home on the family farm in Blanchard, Michigan on February 17, 1923, the youngest child of Edd and Bertha (Fellows) Marston. Edd grew up on that family farm and attended school in Blanchard. He worked for a time in Detroit until enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corp in 1943. Edd served in the Pacific during WWII as part of the “mopping up” campaign on Guam and the battle of Iwo Jima.
He was discharged from the military in 1946 and upon returning to Michigan met and then married Vivian Crawford of Edmore on June 14, 1947. Edd and Vivian continued to farm the family homestead in Blanchard and Edd worked at General Electric, later Hitachi of Edmore, retiring in 1985. Edd is remembered as outgoing and friendly, with a love of hunting, fishing, and good times – good stories shared with friends and family.
