Ed Thorman passed away at home on February 21, 2016, at the age of 85. Born in New York City to Jesse and Bertha Thorman. Graduated Penn State University and joined the Air Force. The family moved to Pottsville Pa. and, after a trip around the country, decided the settle in Dallas where they went into the Toy business with three locations of Toy Carnival, Inc. After some years the toy business closed, and Ed acquired a lawn mower sales and service store. Ed’s Lawn Equipment has been in business for over 50 years, and has been in its current Midway location for 31 years. Ed was mechanically and electrically handy and the business prospered. He could tell someone how to fix a mower over the phone. He was known as a doctor of mowers and all his patients were lined up for repair. Sales of equipment were good and rewarded the company with many trips. After Ed retired his son Joel took over the business which exists to this day.
Ed is survived by Barbara, his wife of 57 years, son Joel Thorman, daughter Karen Walters and husband Mark, daughter in law Julie Thorman, grandchildren John Hand and wife Jamie, Jessica Johnson and husband Henry, Jack Thorman, Wayne Walters, Justin Walters, great grandchildren, Lexia Hand, Sydney Hand.
