Born on March 30, 1951, in Lock Haven, he was the son of the late William Thurston and Vida Viola (Fiedler) Stoner.
Ed was a graduate of Lock Haven High School, Class of 1969. He graduated from Lock Haven State College in 1973 with a degree in Physics. He worked for the Department of Forestry, L.F. Widmann, and Proctor and Gamble.

Ed loved his community, supported local teams and businesses and never wanted to live anywhere else but Clinton County.
