Obituary for Edward Lee Atwood

Edward Lee  Atwood
Edward Lee Atwood, 53, of Murphysboro, passed away at 6:12 p.m. Thursday, July 26, 2018, at his residence with his loving wife by his side. 

Born November 17, 1964, in Kankakee, Illinois, to Jack Atwood and Emiliee M. (Ulrich) Atwood, Ed was the youngest of four children. 

He was a U.S. Army veteran. After his time in the service, Ed was a professional cook -- carrying a passion for culinary arts throughout his life. He especially loved making and sharing old family recipes during the holidays. He spent the last several decades traveling the country as a truck driver, making many acquaintances and friends along the way. 

Ed had many interests and hobbies, and will be fondly remembered for his engaging political debates, knowledge of historical trivia, love of Star Wars, Chicago sports, music, science fiction, and his Pez collection. His loved ones will miss his great sense of humor -- he always knew how to make people laugh and smile. 

Edward married his best friend Michelle (Stevens) on October 10, 1999, in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, she survives.

Other survivors include his wife's children Josiah Hair and his wife Michelle Hair of Froid, Montana and Matthew Hair and his wife Danielle Gordon of Murphysboro; two grandchildren Jackson and Ellie Hair; his mother Emiliee of Anna; two brothers Scott Atwood of College Park, Maryland and Dr. Thomas Atwood of Los Lunas, New Mexico; his Uncle Kurt Ulrich and wife Sherrie, of Colorado, and his Uncle Richard Ulrich and wife Pam, of Washington state; 16 nieces and nephews; and many friends, including four furry friends. 

He was preceded in death by his father and one sister Jacqueline Atwood. 

Visiting hours will be from 6 to 7 p.m. with a memorial service at 7 p.m. Wednesday, August 1, 2018, at Pettett Funeral Home, 1418 South Street, Murphysboro, IL 62966.
