Born in Manchester on February 6, 1946, he was the son of Eugene and Georgiana (Desmarais) Desruisseaux. He served in the Army National Guard and US Navy from 1966 to 1969 during the Vietnam era. He served on the USS Dupont.

Edward was a life member of the American Legion Post 54 and was commander for almost 10 years. He was also a life member of the V.F.W. Post #8214 and the Alpine Club.
He had a great talent for specialty welding and no fear of heights. He enjoyed camping and traveling with his family. After an early retirement, he became a Florida snowbird with his wife and enjoyed several cruises and traveling cross country. One of his greatest joys was helping others and always being there for his family. He was happy and felt that he had enjoyed a full life.
