Edward Vonier

Edward Vonier is the bookkeeper for American Hearing Aid Center.  Edward, one of five children, was raised on a farm located 4 miles west of Pavo, GA.  His childhood chores included helping in the fields, tending to the animals and plowing the mule with his dad.  After graduating from Central High School in 1969, Edward worked jobs ranging from manufacturing mobile home roofs to assisting a veterinarian.  For fun, he loved drag racing the quarter mile in his Chevelle.

In April of 1971, Edward was drafted into The United States Army, where he trained as a Medic.  While serving in the military, he spent 14 months in Korea during the Vietnam War.  After returning home, Edward began working at Kinro Manufacturing in 1973 building windows.  He furthered his education by attending night school for 2 years at The University of Georgia Extension Center.  Through several promotions, he became the Plant Manager and maintained this position for 27 years until retirement in 2007.   

In 2009, Edward assisted with opening American Hearing Aid Center and has been with the company as a sort of “Jack of all Trades” ever since.  He recalls a memorable encounter at the office immediately after Jason delivered hearing aids to a lady.  The lady went to her car, but in a minute, returned.  She explained hearing an unusual buzzing noise coming from her car.  Edward accompanied her to her car discovering she had never heard the buzzing when placing the key into the ignition switch.  Those everyday sounds are taken for granted by many.  Edward finds joy in seeing people experience those sounds again.

Edward is actively involved within his community.  He served on the Thomas County Board of Education for 16 years and the Thomas County Elections & Registrations Board for 3 years.  Currently, Edward volunteers as an Election Poll Worker for Thomas County.  Over the years, Edward has served on various committees in his church with the Treasurer and Cemetery Committee being his predominant responsibilities.  

In Edward’s leisure time, he loves spending time with his family.  Edward and his wife, Kay, have been married since May 1974.  They have a daughter, Heather, and a son-in law, Jason.  Edward shows his playful side with his grand-dog, Cotton.  Beyond quality time with the family, he enjoys working in the yard, helping neighbors with projects, and feeding his duck, Baby.

Amazing. He was excellent at explaining things in a very understandable way. Listened to me and asked a lot of questions so that we could “connect the dots” and come up with a possible cause and treatment. Excellent service.
