It is with great sadness that the family of Edward Leon Self announces his passing on November 29th, 2018, at the age of 79 years.  Ed will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 55 years, Christa and his children, Eddie (Janet), Scott (Paige), Heidi (Justin) Fuller, and Christian (Meghan).

A native of Flour Bluff, Texas, Ed joined the United States Army in 1961, and was stationed in Germany where he met Christa.

Ed enjoyed travelling, he and Christa would regularly take trips to Europe and Asia, most recently spending two months in the Germany this past summer.  At their second home in Corpus Christi, Ed was able to pursue another favorite interest, spending countless hours fishing.  In recent years, Ed was especially passionate about cheering on his grandchildren as they participated in their various sport activities.
