Ed Kuntz was born and raised in Abilene, the son of Homer and Sarah Kuntz. Upon graduation from high school, he moved to Indiana to attend college and start a family. In 1978 he returned to his beloved hometown of Abilene, where he ran the A&W Drive-in with his wife, June.
For 23 years, Ed and June owned an operated A&W, as well as Mr. K’s Buckboard, Mr. K’s Farmhouse, and Mr. K’s Express. Outside of work, Ed was a dedicated father and church member. He was also known for his bass singing voice in his church quartet.
In 2000, Ed was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. He passed away eight months later. The Ed Kuntz Memorial Golf Tournament is a testament to Ed’s love for his community and his family’s appreciation for Home Health and Hospice care.
