inspiration for generations of success and caring. He led by example with humility, respect for others, and a passion to do well.
Ed was UCLA Engineering Alumnus of the Year in 1987. Ed’s son, Wyman, and his granddaughter, Alyssa, were given special recognition shortly after Ed’s death at UCLA’s engineering alumnus of the year ceremony for three generations of graduates from the UCLA program. His grandson, Mark, is attending the University of Washington, where his grandfather earned a bachelor’s degree.
Ed’s family has so much love and respect for him that his sons Stan and Phil and grandson Bradley climbed the same mountain that Ed climbed years earlier and spread his ashes on the peak. It is fitting that Ed has become a permanent part of the grandeur of this great country he served and loved.
Survivors include his wife, Lorie Dunford; his sons, Wyman Dunford (and wife Marianne); Stanley Dunford (and wife Helen); Philip Dunford; and daughter Marlo Garrett (and husband Tim); stepchildren Matthew Henning and Abbey Greene; and his grandchildren, Carina Dunford, Laurel Dunford, Alyssa Dunford, Bradley Dunford, Amy Dunford, Mark Dunford, Michele Dunford, Katie Dunford, Jessica Garrett, and Jason Garrett.
