Edgar A. Fountain, 87, of Bristol, passed unexpectedly on Dec. 31.
He was born to Alice (Begert) and Maurice Fountain on March 22, 1931 in New York, but his residence and real home was the Fountain family home in Bristol.
Ed also spent most of his life in Mexico where he met his late wife, Dulce Maria, and married her there in the 1990s. He was in Mexico trying to sell the last house they had together when he passed.
Ed was a self made traveling man his whole life. People could learn anything from him, and some of the wild stories that he told will always be remembered.
He worked for GM in his earlier years as somewhat of an inventor. He mastered the stock market and managed his money well as he traveled from coast to coast for most of his life. He will be missed and his memory honored always.
Ed leaves behind brother, Melvin; children, Susan, Gregory, Gary, Annie, and Kenneth; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and a great-great-grandchild.
