Edwin Samuel Munson
Born: 10/16/1924, Milo, Idaho
Dad married L Jean Robinson September 6, 1947. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. Jean died August 1997 just a couple of weeks short of their 50th anniversary. Dad was blessed with a second companion when he married Wendy McDougald October 6, 2000.
Dad had a varied professional life, but his first love was sales. He worked for Armco Steel, Remington Rand, Sperry, Salt Lake County, and he had his own office machine company. Whether as a job or just because he was the man he was, his was a life of service to his fellowman.
Ed is survived by his wife, Wendy and his children. E. Brent (Joanne) Munson, Kearns, UT; Robert G. (Robyn) Munson, West Jordan, UT; Jeanine Moon, West Jordan, UT; and Renae (Scott) Romney, Sandy, UT. With his marriage to Wendy, he added two more to his list of kids. Eric “Mac” (Alberta) Nelson, Moab, UT; and Stephanie Anderson, Seattle, WA. Of his original family he is survived by his two younger sisters. Helen Jephson, Idaho Falls, ID, and Lenore (Raymond) Jones, Ucon, ID. He leaves 16 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren. The list of his “adopted” kids is too large to number. Once you met Dad, you were his friend and were treated as such.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his first wife Jean, and his three older brothers, Jack, Harold “Bud”, and Wayne.
As the Savior admonished to love and serve your fellowman, Dad lived this principle. The family would especially like to thank the staff of the Canyonlands Care Center and Dad’s special nurse Paula for the exceptional care Dad received.

Dad loved kids. A donation to one of the children’s charities would be appreciated in lieu of flowers.
Tributes7/15/2014 - What a wonderful spirit shined through Ed from the first time I ever met him and the last time I had the privilege to see him. He loved us Valley Voices and we sang to him every Valentines Day at the request of Wendy. The joy just poured out of him when we sang to him, and his favorite was "Somewhere Over the Rainbow". Ed was a dear friend to my Pa, Jack Keogh and he was very instrumental in their very memorable trip on the Honor Flight to Washington D.C.. This trip meant so much to my Pa and everybody else who went then. May Ed rest in peace and may his spirit and soul soar to lofty and high places! - Janie Keogh Tuft7/9/2014 - My condolences to the Munson family. You must know that your loved one was a trustworthy and caring person in every way. I served with him for many years, and never met a finer person and soldier.
