Welcome to the memorial page for

Ed McDaniel

May 29, 1984 ~ August 18, 2017 (age 33)

The Piano Brothers

Ed McDaniel was born May 29, 1984 to Luther Rush and Queen Esther Redd in Chicago, IL. He received his primary education in Chicago where he graduated from Manley high School. In 2013, Ed followed his family to Iowa and settled into life in Des Moines. He found a job he loved at American Airlines; and his co-workers thought a lot of him also. Ed was a workaholic. When he wasn't at work he loved to BBQ and spend time with his family. He adored his three children and took up a lot of time teaching them about life. Ed loved music, fast cars, video games and of course-the ladies. 

And suddenly, he was gone! Ed was lost to us in a tragic accident on August 18, 2017. He was only 33 years old. 

Ed leaves behind his children, his mother, Queen Esther; his 24 siblings and a host of extended family and friends.

Please consider making a donation to help Ed's family with funeral costs. They would like to take Ed back to Chicago for services and a memorial service in Des Moines will be held at a later date.
