He owned and operated a dairy farm in Stetsonville with his brother, Herb, owned and operated Riegert Brothers Mink Ranch, and later was an insurance agent through which he was the State of Wisconsin Director of Insurance with General Life of America. Ed then started his own business, Dairy Consultants, which was a dairy cattle nutrition program. He later drove as a volunteer for the Commission on Aging, was employed as a driver for Comfort Carriers and for 24 years was a volunteer with the Farmers Crisis Hotline.

Ed was a wonderful husband, brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend who touched many lives with his compassionate heart. For the final four days of his life, Ed was surrounded by family and friends who prayed, sang, reminisced and gave him love.
