Edgar Frank Bolton was born on June 6, 1955 at Corona Naval Base in California and grew up in Colorado. He died recently of a Hemorrhagic stroke. Ed served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War then graduated fro Mesa State College in Occupational Health and Safety. His home was the world and he worked in International Mining for 38 years before retiring last fall. He had the opportunity to work on every continent on the globe with the exception of Antarctica. He was passionate about his profession, leading teams to excel in mining safety and in the process winning 4 Sentinels of Safety awards. Outside of work he enjoyed fishing and taking his sons water skiing.
Ed is survived by his beloved wife, Carol Bolton and their children Katherine Batten, Angela Laird, Alex Laird and Gregory Laird plus a granddaughter, Amelia Batten, his mother Janet Bolton, 2 brothers Fred Bolton and Dan Bolton, a sister Lenora Milligan and 7 nieces and nephews Amber Bolton, Sarah Bolton, Audrey Bolton, Ashlee Abeyta, Matthew Milligan, Jacob Milligan and Jessica Carter.
Ed will be missed by his family and friends as he made a huge impact on their lives as Carol's true love and soul mate, his children's mentor, his sibling's "big brother" and his role as the favorite uncle of the various nieces and nephews. To Amelia he was her "Papoose" and to the world he was the unique cowboy with the hat and handlebar mustache his brand. Cheers to you Ed as you continue the journey of a lifetime to the other side.
