Edward Lee Werland, 58, was born in Austin Texas, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, July 27th, 2008. He was preceded in death by his parents Evelyn and Edward Robert Werland. He was a life long resident of Austin and is survived by his loving wife Cindy and their two daughters, Jennifer Moore and son in law Spencer and granddaughter Pearl Vida, and Vanessa Marchese and son in law Louis; his brother Bobby Werland and his wife Carol Ann and many aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces and cousins. Ed graduated from The University of Texas receiving both his Bachelor and Masters degrees. He spent his professional career of over 30 years with Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Ed's love of the sport of baseball as a player extended into umpiring at local baseball and softball games. He raised his family in Austin. Ed loved the outdoors and spent many wonderful times in the great outdoors from Yoakum to Colorado. Ed was a dreamer who had the talent to make many of those dreams come true for his family. One of his favorite places to relax was his cabin he and his family built, which he considered "magical" and was a gathering place for many family functions. He will always be remembered for being the caring, compassionate and loving husband, father, brother, uncle and friend that he was. He had such a zest for life and was such an inspiration to his many friends and family. Ed had a deep devotion and enduring love for his wife and daughters. We will all miss Ed's great sense of humor. Ed would want us all to live our lives to the fullest and to follow our dreams.
