Our special father went to heaven peacefully on December 17th, 2010 after a long and wonderful life. Born in FonduLac, WI on June 3rd, 1918, he will be greatly missed.
Edward, (Jim), was a retail jeweler and watchmaker by trade, several jewelry stores over the years.
He married Charlotte Galles in 1941. They had three children, Ruth Ann Edens, Phillip John, and Robert Paul. There are numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
He proudly served 42 months in the Navy during WWII, receiving an honorable discharge in 1946. He and Mom opened a jewelry store in Grafton, WI. It worked out well but they wanted to raise their family in California for health reasons. In 1960 they started ‘Scherzinger Jewelers’ in Fillmore, where he worked until his retirement in 1978. His twilight years were spent in the ‘El Dorado Mobile Home Park’ until 2009, when he moved to Ventura.
He was preceeded in death by his beloved ‘Charlotte’ who died in 1985. He is survived by Ruth, husband Jim (Ventura), Phil, wife Bev (Spring, TX) and Rob, wife Azusa (Oxnard).
The family would like to honor his life and death in a private ceremony. We greatly appreciate all the warmth and support from all of his/our wonderful friends, especially the folks at the ‘Palms at Bonaventure’ and ‘Victoria Care Center’.
