Mr. Amon was born in Willimantic, Connecticut, the son of the late Edward Christian Amon, Sr. and Frieda Krauss Amon. After high school, Mr. Amon began his first career by proudly serving his country in the United States Army. Early in his military service, an assignment took him to Germany, where he met the love of his life Liselotte Mück. While serving as an American Patriot, he completed two tours of duty in Viet Nam, and after 22 years of devoted service, he retired to be with his family at the rank of E-7 Sergeant First Class. After his military retirement, Mr. Amon began working on vehicles and became well known as a mechanic and machinist. He always believed in helping others and was honest in his diagnosis and pricing. When he wasn’t working, he enjoyed hunting and fishing. Another attribute, according to his family, was always telling others what to do or how to do it! Above all, he loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

In addition to his parents and his wife, Mr. Amon was preceded in death by his brother Fred Amon.

Left to cherish his memory are daughters Deborah Stull of Resaca, GA and Diana Johnson (Randy) of Liberty, SC; son Edward Amon of Columbus, GA; sisters Louise Vintelette of Lebanon, CT and Ruth Kuzemech (John) of RI; brothers Harold Amon (Pat) of Baltic, CT and Alfred Amon of Lebanon, CT; five grandchildren; thirteen great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren.
