Edwin, best known as as Ed or Pieyo to his family and friends, was born on July 13, 1949 in Los Angeles to the late Irene(Johnny) McClellan and biological father Edwin Washington who passed when Edwin was 3 months old. He was an intelligent, caring and understanding man of his time, leaving an impact and legacy of God-fearing people around him.
