Clyde Edward “Ed” Angles, 93, of East Liberty, where he lived with his son Gary and family since 2008, went to be with the Lord on Friday, March 28, 2014.
He was born in Jackson County on March 3, 1921, the oldest of seven children, to the late Clyde and Muriel Pittenger Angles.
He attended Berlin Elementary and was a 1939 graduate of Wellston High School.
Ed was a veteran of World War II in the United States Army. He served in the South Pacific and was decorated with the Bronze Star.
After returning from the war, he continued his education at Ohio University in drafting/engineering. He worked as a draftsman for McNally Pittsburg in Wellston and Chillicothe Mead Paper Corporation for more than 20 years. He also worked at Goodyear Atomic from which he retired after 11 years of service.
Ed was a 50-year member of the Black Diamond Lodge, McArthur Chapter and Jackson Council. He was also a member of the Columbus Scottish Rite and Aladdin Shrine.
He was known for his love of family and people. He never missed an opportunity to be in the outdoors enjoying the sunshine; whether in the garden or watching the animals.
In 1952, Ed married his “Doll,” Bessie “Bess” Cameron. They had two children, Patricia Maria and Gary Edward. Patricia is married to Eric Vincent and lives in Austin, Texas. They have five children, Rudy, Sadie (David) Corrie, Jonathan (Jackie), Hallie and Addie. They also have two great-grandchildren, Cameron Martin Corrie and Juliet Bess Vincent.
