Edgar Blaine Mouser, of Mesquite, TX passed away on July 5th, 2022, at 1:09pm. He fought a long, incredible battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis and passed peacefully surrounded by his family. He will be loved, remembered and missed every day.
Ed had a lot of names, but was famously known as Mr. Ed.
Born in Philippi, West Virginia on New Year’s Day, 1950, Ed came into the world full of laughter, smiles, joy and positivity.
He served two years in the Army where his last post was at Fort Hood in Killeen, TX. He fought for his country during the Vietnam War, receiving multiple service medals. While in the Army he found a passion for cooking working as the kitchen supervisor. His passion continued over the years, and one of his greatest joys was being in the kitchen or manning the grill. He loved trying new recipes and most importantly feeding people. If you ever met Mr. Ed, he most likely tried to feed you and it was probably pancakes, as that was his favorite thing to cook.
He met the love of his life, Mary on October 2, 1971, and married her 6 months later only three days after being honorably discharged from the Army. He and his beautiful bride celebrated 50 years of marriage on April 22, 2022. He and Mary were the perfect example of lasting love. When asked on his 50th wedding anniversary for his best marriage advice he said, “Go to bed together every night and never go to bed angry.”
Mr. Ed worked as a machinist for more than 30 years, most of his career being with Otis Engineering and DalTile. After his retirement in 2012 you could find Mr. Ed at the nearest casino or at home watching Gunsmoke. His hobbies included his grandchildren, walking, fishing and playing chess. Additionally, he got a kick out of beating Mary in the card game Rummy, going out with an 11 game winning streak.
A kind, honest soul with a wild sense of humor. He made everyone laugh and if you knew him, you loved him. A true individual, a storyteller, a conversationalist and a philosopher, always a friend never a stranger.
A celebration of life memorial service will be held at 10:00 am, Saturday, July 16th at New Hope Funeral Home located at 500 US 80 in Sunnyvale, TX 75182. Visitation from 9:30-10:00am.
