Ed was a Grove Township Farmer and Greenfield, IA resident for over 90 years. His parents are Edward P. and Stella Plymesser Bohan. He graduated from Greenfield High School. Ed married Louise Mary Lydon. In total, they had four children including Dean, Beverly, Betty, and Phillip.

Ed farmed until 1974 when he retired. At one time, he was president of the Farmer's COOP. The family farmer was something that he believed in strongly.After retiring from farming, he moved to town in Greenfield with Louise. After the passing of Louise and Dean, he moved to Oskaloosa, IA to be near his daughter Betty. He lived his final two years near his son Phillip in Omaha, NE.

Ed enjoyed cards and dominoes. In Greenfield, they had a Men's club that met in the "boy's room" to play cards. In his basement in Greenfield, he had a pool table that was a fine gathering place.

Family was very important to Ed. He took trips to Hawaii and Oregon to visit his brother Wayne. Given Ed's heart condition being very serious in his late 80's, it was very remarkable that Ed was able to go to Oregon. In addition, he went with family to Ireland. In Ireland, they attended a family reunion of people from the same country and with the same Surname. No link was found to prove relationship. A DNA test showed that they are very likely direct relations.

Ed also enjoyed visits with his Brother Clarence and his family.

There was a large family reunion for his 90th Birthday in Oskaloosa, IA. His 95th Birthday was a very large gathering in Omaha. He enjoyed his children, grand children, and great-grandchildren.
