Dr. Edward G. Cantell, 59, of Olathe passed away on July 8, 2020 at KU Medical center. He was born on November 9, 1960 to Dale and Wanda Cantrell in Kansas City, Kansas.

After graduating from high school, Edd attended Kansas State University and earned his Bachelors of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry.

Edd had a dental practice in Spring Hill and Olathe for many years. He retired from his private practice and began working full time at UMKC School of Dentistry as an Associate Professor. Edward loved teaching and loved working with his colleagues. The best and brightest part of his day was mentoring his students for a future in Dentistry.
