Ed was born December 28, 1937 in Toledo, Ohio to Edward and Virginia (Weaver) Tschappat. In 1962, he married Ann Marie Rook. For nearly sixty years they made a loving life together.

Ed was an Engineer on the Gemini Space Program. He taught High School Math and Science both in Toledo and Detroit and was a Statistics Professor with Bowling Green State University. Ed continued his career as a Ford Motor Co Development Engineer and traveled extensively for Ford until retirement. Ed was an avid reader, and his passion for teaching and his student’s learning drove Ed to continue as a College Professor post retirement, teaching Science, Math and Astronomy. He taught until a month before his passing. Ed loved his family intensely and spent every moment possible doing everything he could to actively be a positive force in their lives.
Ed is survived by his wife, Ann; his daughters Lucy and Jennifer, his son Bob; four grandchildren, Natasha, Katarina, Nathan, and KaeLeigh; and his great grandchildren, Maxwell, Sophie, Alexander, John Parker, and Charlotte. He was preceded in death by his grandchild, Kaila.
