Edwin E. Sims, was born October 29, 1925 in Mangum, Okla. He was raised in Arkansas. At the age of 15 he moved to California to live with a brother and to get a better education. He married in 1947 and had four children. Sims worked as an accountant for many years while continuing his education. He received his degree from Southwestern University. In 1977 he opened his own company EESCO Contractor’s Supply where he worked for the next 20 years. Carol and Ed were married in 1979 adding three more children to the family. Their enjoyment in the horse business brought them a wonderful; group of friends which they enjoyed many good times with. Ed retired in 1977 and began to live life on a more leisurely basis, enjoying his garden, seven children, 12 grandchildren and one great granddaughter. They enjoyed owning and showing such great horses as Copy’s Count Marco, Nightwatch, I’m Finally, Pusher’s Twist About, Pushover’s Infiniti, Altima, and his all time favorite Card Trick. They had horses with Jimmy McConnell since the 1980’s. He left this life Sept. 29, 2004. We will miss him dearly. Any contributions may be made to the TWHBEA Children’s Academy Program.
