Ed was a graduate of Johnstown Catholic High School and a proud veteran of the Air Force.  He worked at Bethlehem Steel then, as an Engineer for multiple companies.   All his life, even after retirement Ed kept busy; he would work on most anything he could get his hands on.   He spent most of his time in the garage tinkering or engineering something, or working on his land.   He was also an avid motorcycle enthusiast, enjoyed hosting family picnics, singing either in the church choir or just a tune on his own, he could be caught dancing, listening to live music, traveling and spending the winter months as a snow bird in Sebring, Florida.  His smile and joy for life was infectious and he will be greatly missed.
