Edmund was a longtime respected and admired school teacher having taught chemistry, math and physics for thirty years.

Community and volunteer endeavors included the Limestone County Farm Bureau, where he served as president and on many committees at both the county and state levels. He received the Farm Bureau Pioneer award in 2008. Additional organizations benefiting from his involvement were Habitat for Humanity, the Red Cross, Retired Teachers Association, Pt. Enterprise Water Supply Corp. and the Knights of Columbus, where he once served as the Grand Knight. When time allowed, Edmund also enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping.
