Though our hearts were not ready Edward “Ed” Leroy Vining Sr. earned his angel wings Sunday, July 26,2020.

If you had the privilege of knowing him, you know he loved to tell jokes and make sure everyone was always smiling and laughing.

Ed was always a hard worker. Whether it was while he worked at the CF&I Steel Mill in Pueblo, CO., FMC in Pocatello, ID., Rockwool in Belton, TX. or the grocery store HIS that he owned and operated in Roanoke, VA. He would always be putting in all of his effort to take care of his family. He loved his family very much.

After retirement you could find him spending his free time with his wife, kids, grandkids and great grandkids. One of his greatest joys was fishing trips, especially if that time included being with his family. Ed also had a passion for hunting and looking for arrowheads. Another one of his past times was enjoying coffee and breakfast with his friends at one of the local diners. He really enjoyed going to local diners, you can bet that he would pick a mom and pop diner over a big chain restaurant. In the afternoon he would share a game of dominoes with friends.

Ed will truly be missed. Even though he is not with us here on Earth, we will keep his spirit alive by going out and enjoying the things he loved. Most importantly making memories and loving our families.
