Ed loved to dance and was everyone’s partner.  He was once replied, “Those Mell girls can’t follow, they all want to lead”.   He dearly loved the beach, boiled peanuts and was a true “Rambling Wreck” fan.

McCuen, Jr. (Abby); daughter, Virginia “Ginny” Marie McCuen, and son, Joseph Mell McCuen; granddaughters, Piper Rose and Alice James McCuen; brother, William P. McCuen, Jr. (Lyn); sister, Pam M.
