BARBERTON---Edward L. King, 66, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, members of Crossroads Hospice and the caring staff of Greenfield Estates.After graduating from Copley High, Ed served in the Navy as an electrician’s mate on the USS America, an aircraft carrier that took him to many parts of the world.  He especially enjoyed time in England and Spain.  When his service was up, he returned home to the Barberton area where he worked for 20 years as a machinist at B & C.  He was often seen riding his bike, even though he had a car.  Simple things seemed to make him happy, radio talk shows, music, playing checkers, movies and eating pizza.  Eddie was easy going and never seemed to be in a hurry.  He could roast the “most perfect” hot dog over the campfire no matter how long it took.
