December 11, 1946 - November 13, 2016
Ed Egge passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Sunday the 13th.
The super moon was beginning to rise and the glorious sunset the night before was calling him home.
Ed was born to Edward & Gwendolyn Egge in Artesia California on Dec. 11, 1946. He attended school in Compton and began working with his father at the family business, Egge Marine Service in 1955. There he would spend his professional life, retiring in 2012. Ed moved to Downey in the mid 60’s and remained in our town for the rest of his life. He became very involved with the Downey United Methodist Church in the mid 70’s and was a faithful, dedicated member for the rest of his life. Ed enjoyed volunteering his time at the church, if Ed called upon you for a job at the church, you could never say no and you knew you were going to get dirty, but the effort & fellowship was worth it. Ed was a member of the Downey Elks and coached many of our Downey youth in baseball. He loved camping, fishing, hunting, golfing with his son Jason, his beloved dogs & traveling, but above all he loved his wife Nancy. He was a great neighbor, friend, husband and mentor. He was a rock, consistent, dependable & solid. Ed leaves behind his wife Nancy Egge, his two sons Brian & Jason and his sister Roberta Gera.
