Ed Wilver was a familiar face to many who attend Pennsic War each year and was known for being friendly and helpful to the populace and to Pennsic staff. He and his wife JoAnn, who also works at the Cooper's Lake camp store, own land immediately adjacent to the campground on the north side. Their land and a storage barn have been used for years for Pennsic activities and logistics.
Mr. Wilver, who grew up in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, was an Army veteran and an avid outdoorsman who made his living primarily as a sign painter. His final illness was related to his sign-painting work.
Family members have indicated that expressions of condolence from SCA folk are most welcome, and request that these be sent to the campground office for forwarding. The address is:
