Edward was born October 29, 1950 in Plainview to Albert and Artie Mae Moultrie. He first learned about the love of God when he attended St. Mark CME Church in Pampa. Ed attended Carver Elementary School, Pampa Junior High School, and Pampa High School where he graduated in 1969. With his love of sports, he was one of the first African Americans to play basketball proudly under the leadership of Coach Terry Culley at PHS. After graduation, he continued his studies at Lubbock Christian University (LCU). After 3 years, he returned to Pampa and worked for Skelly Oil Company 20 years. This job led him to future employment in Houston with Conoco Phillips for 22 years. During his stay in Pampa, Ed was fondly known as "Pops" to the kids in the area as he coached basketball with the Pampa Optimist Club. He also helped with practices for the Harvesters. Health problems led to early retirement and a final move to the Dallas-Fort Worth area in October of 2012. In retirement, Ed continued to enjoy sports and his family.
Ed is preceded in death by his mother and father.
Ed is survived by two daughters, Taylor Moultrie Williams and husband Joseph of Houston and granddaughter Ja’niyah, and daughter Charles Johnson of San Antonio; two brothers, Robert Moultrie of Arlington and Samuel Moultrie of Corsicana; five sisters, Thelma Moultrie of Grand Prairie, Rev.
