Edwin William Emil Koester was born on July 30, 1915 in Olney, in Young County, Texas to Fredrich Christoff Henrich "Henry" and Anna Caroline Hausler Koester. He was one of four children. Edwin always went by Ed.

Edwin enlisted in the U.S. Army in World War II. He received Tec 5 status in the war. After his service ended, he returned to his birthplace, Olney, Texas.

On March 4, 1945 he married Effie Alice Zacharias in McGregor, Coryell County, Texas. Ed's brother, Arnold, dated and married Alice's older sister Bertha.

Ed and Alice had one child, Patricia Alice. They raised their family in Olney, in Young County, Texas

Ed was a loving son, brother, father, and uncle. He was my Great-Uncle. I loved visiting with them when we would travel to Olney, Texas. Uncle Ed was a nice and loving man. He and his family were devout Lutherans. He and Alice were more reserved, but we knew they loved us and wanted only the best for us.

Ed died on November 1, 1996 in Olney, in Young County, Texas and was buried in the Restland Cemetery in Olney, in Young County, Texas. He is missed deeply and we know his love is always with us.
