In Memory Of
Ed Gould - Dunlap, TN

After a lengthy battle with Alzheimers, Edward Gould, “Poppy”, passed away December 12, 2017, at his home in Dunlap, Tennessee.

He graduated from McCallie School and went on to receive a B.S. Degree in Wildlife Management from the University of Arizona. He served in the Army as a game biologist. Then he and his family lived in Mobile, Alabama, where he was employed by Eli Lilly Pharmaceutical Co. for 29 years. After retirement, he moved to his family farm on Cagle Mountain.

He brought joy to all those around him whether he was telling a story of days gone by, writing a poem to perfectly depict a person’s personality, reciting a myriad of facts from history, or pointing out the name of each of the trees around him in the woods where he loved to hike. Poppy never met a stranger, and made everyone he met feel special. Poppy loved the Lord deeply, and he and his wife were members of Abba’s House in Hixson, Tennessee.

He is survived by his caring, loving wife, Mary Ann, married 59 years; two daughters, Kimberly (Skip) Peters and Holly (David) Denmark; a sister, Elizabeth Hearne (Michael) Claffey; and a brother, Dr. Lance (Lenja) Gould. Poppy was the beloved grandfather to his five grandchildren, Taylor and Dylan Peters and Madeleine, Emma, and Will Denmark.

He donated his body to the medical school at the University of Tennessee. Visitation in memory of Ed Gould will be held on Saturday, January 27, 2018, at Red Bank Chapel (The Meeting House).

Special thanks to Michael Craft, his CNA, for the loving, tender care he provided for 22 months.

We are so privileged to have known and been loved by Poppy, and his legacy lives on in all our hearts.
