This is truly a “Ma & Pa” business. Not too long ago, Ed and Peg moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest in order to join other family members who had already made the move.
Peg spent several decades as a Registered Nurse, during which time she worked in Intensive Care and Critical Care Units, and a Cardiology Clinic. She was also a Home Health Visiting Nurse, and finished her career at one of the most esteemed Hospice organizations in the world. Peg is now a stay-at-home housewife, occasionally caring for our two great granddaughters. She is also involved with a local organization that combats sex trafficking.
Peg keeps the books, and handles many of the pick-ups and deliveries. Also, she sometimes orders and obtains replacement parts. You can reach Peg at: Peg@KitsapSAR.com.
While in High School and College, Ed worked as the only small appliance and vacuum cleaner repairman at an appliance sales and repair business. During that time, Ed made repairs on hundreds of small appliances. After graduation, he continued his career with an electronic instrument design and manufacturing company where he used his troubleshooting abilities to identify and repair newly assembled electronic instruments. He then moved to writing assignments, starting with a procedure that identified any faulty component within a 1000 piece electronic instrument. Thorough testing by the U.S. Army confirmed the procedure needed no changes. Over the years, Ed created and updated commercial manuals for such things as electronic light creating and measuring equipment, and elevators (his favorite job where he was often seen with tools in his hand helping to assemble elevator cars). Ed used his electronic and mechanical abilities to help design changes to an aging, portable military air traffic control system. While never a member of the military, Ed has done work in support of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. His most identifiable project was writing the very first theory of operation and testing procedure for the stabilization thrusters onboard the International Space Station (then called the Freedom Space Station). These thrusters keep the entire Space Station stable as it circles the earth.
Ed makes all the repairs, and handles the remaining pick-ups and deliveries. He also orders and obtains most replacement parts. You can reach Ed at: Ed@KitsapSAR.com.
