Doctor Edward M. La Forge was a 24th century Starfleet officer, of the sciences division, an exozoologist by profession. By his wife Silva, he was the father of two children, Ariana and Geordi La Forge. (TNG: "The Next Phase", "Interface", "Force of Nature")

Young Geordi spent time with both his parents as a child, sometimes separately. For a time, Geordi lived with him while Edward studied invertebrates in the Modean system. On other occasions, Geordi would instead be away from Edward, on outposts near the Romulan Neutral Zone with mother Silva. (TNG: "Imaginary Friend")

In 2340, La Forge and his wife Silva helped Geordi get out of a fire he got caught in. After this, Geordi wouldn't let Edward and Silva get out of earshot. (TNG: "Hero Worship")

In 2370, he was a commander. That year, he was seen by his wife, before her ship USS Hera vanished and Starfleet declared the ship and crew missing. He informed his daughter about the disappearance before he contacted Geordi. Edward described her funeral arrangements, frustrating Geordi, who believed she could still be alive. (TNG: "Interface")

Dr. La Forge was played by Ben Vereen.
We know his first name and middle initial from a different episode, TNG: "The Next Phase", where it was listed on an okudagram graphic, a personnel file displayed on a viewscreen. According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 256), his given name was suggested by Rick Berman. Otherwise, according to the script for "Interface", he was referred to simply as "Doctor La Forge".
