Edward W. Moeller | Obituary

Edward W. “EZ ED” Moeller, 82, of Waterloo, died May 25, 2023, in St. Louis. He was born Sept. 30, 1940, in Clayton, Mo.

Ed worked for over 35 years at Anheuser-Busch, retiring in 1998. He was an avid sports fan, enjoying Cardinals baseball, Billikens Basketball, horse racing, and all Waterloo sporting vents. Ed was often found in the front row of WHS basketball games disputing the referees or discussing the local baseball teams’ outlook for the season. He enjoyed his trips to Walmart to visit with friends and find the latest James Patterson book. Ed made friends wherever he was and loved his new hometown that embraced him.

The family would like to extend a special thank you for the care and compassion provided by Red Bud Home Health Care, as well as the WCUSD No. 5 Athletic Department for always accommodating “EZ ED”.
