Chief Carey served his country as a radioman
during WWII ending his last tour of duty in
McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. He retired with
24 years of honorable service. Those years in
the military were essential to his civilian career
working for Control Data. He was a pioneer in
the computer software industry until her retired
in 1996. He and his wife have lived their golden
years in Bullhead, Az.
He once said, “someday these huge computers
will fit on your lap” and he was right. In 2004
the World Wide Web became his way of passing
many hours. Daily emailed letters to friends, fam-
ily and an occasional politician were ways for Ed
to stay in touch with all who knew him. He lived
a life of integrity and always was a man of honor.
All who loved him will miss him.
