He worked at the Departments of Administration and Corrections in the Personnel field before becoming a Community Control Officer at Department of Corrections and retiring in February 1996.
During his long retirement, Ed enjoyed gardening and decorating his yard on Halloween and Christmas for the neighborhood to enjoy.
For several years he owned Koi Waterscapes and Rock Gardens and created natural water gardens for people. He also ran the Talla-Aussie Boomerang Club, teaching people how to throw boomerangs. Ed also enjoyed dressing up as Santa Claus for fund-raising photo opportunities for the neighborhood and the Tallahassee Humane Society.
Ed was a gentle, loving man who was known for his dry sense of humor. He loved animals and owned a succession of dogs and cats.
Ed was preceded in death by his parents Charles Edward and Annie Louise Covington Pieratte. He is survived by his wife of 31 years, Pat, his dog Wally and his cat Maya. No service is planned.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent in Ed's memory to the Leon County Humane Society, 413 Timberlane Road, Tallahassee.
