Edgar attended St. John Catholic High School in Westminster. During his senior year, he decided to enter the Jesuit Seminary in New York to pursue his interest in becoming a Brother. Upon graduation from high school, he attended seminary for the next five years. After his years in seminary, Edgar became a Customer Service Agent for Trans World Airlines and American Airlines, and worked in the industry for the next 25 years. He purchased a home in St. Louis, where he enjoyed gardening and landscaping. He dedicated his creative work in landscaping and architecture to his mother, Hilda.
