Edwin "Ed" Tyson Hunter, Sr. (1911-1988)
My daddy was born on this date, August 13, 1911, 98 years ago, in Marietta. He died in Marietta, July 14, 1988, at age 77.
He seemed to have known everybody in town by their first names. I remember he would pay his utilities bills in person. It would not occur to him to mail them a check. The Cobb County Water System, and utility companies, such as Atlanta Gas, Georgia Power, and the telephone companies had/have cashiers. He felt paying them directly without going through the post office he knew they got it. And I think to him it was a good excuse to walk around the downtown Square and possibly run into old friends and talk and catchup with them. As I get older I understand.
