COLUMBIA — Edward "Chase" Senor could often be found roaming the woods to hunt or following a river to find the best fishing spots, usually bringing along family or friends.
"Strong. He was just strong," Elicia Engel, his sister, said. "He was strong-minded, strong-hearted, strong-willed."
Edward "Chase" Senor died Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013. He was 33. The cause of death has not yet been determined, said Dori Burke, chief forensic investigator for Boone and Callaway counties.
Mr. Senor was born July 13, 1980, in Columbia to Edward O. Senor and Pamela (Sapp) Cook.
He worked for Columbia Lawn Care, a job his sister said he loved.
His two children, Kynleigh and Declan, were the most important part of his life, Engel said.
He also enjoyed arrowhead hunting and spending time with friends, his sister said.
