August 29, 1950 - February 17, 2021


Edward Gillus Gatliff, 70, of Fairfield Township, Ohio, passed away on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. He was born to Corliss and Statia Gatliff (nee Myers) on August 29, 1950 in Hamilton, Ohio.

Edd received his undergraduate degree from Ohio State University and his PhD from The University of Nebraska. He was the founder and President of Applied Natural Sciences, Inc., an environmental consulting firm, and the inventor of the patented TreeMediation system. Edd was a pioneer of phytoremediation, using trees to treat contaminated groundwater.

When not traveling around the world both for work and pleasure, Edd split his time between Fairfield Township, Ohio and Scottsdale, Arizona. He enjoyed woodworking, house projects, hiking, and spending time with his family.

Edd is survived by his wife of 47 years, Beverly, his children Tara and Kenny, his grandchildren Lizzy and Jordy, and his siblings Ken, Gail, Gary, Carl, Norma, and Kathy. The immediate family will be having a private service in Scottsdale on February 23, and a celebration of life for Edd's wider family and friends in Ohio in July.
