He was born on April 21, 1947, in Akron, the son of the late Edward Frey and Ethel (Olsen) Umsted.  On August 18, 1968, he united in marriage with his loving wife, Elaine (Rawlins) Umsted, who survives.

Elaine and family, my heart ached when I read of Ed's passing in the Gazette. Ed was a very kind man and I always enjoyed our conversations on the unit. He truly loved his family and church family. I will miss him. Prayers for God's comfort.
