Ed was a Navy Veteran and member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary. He was employed as an Autobody technician for many years until he retired in the mid ‘90s. He was a long-time member of the Elks Club. One of his greatest joys was being a member of the Waucoma Yacht Club in New Haven for 51 years. Here he could be found hanging out with his family and friends on the back porch, boating and fishing with a cold beer in his hands, or napping in the sun. Members from the club could always count on him lighting up the room and making everyone laugh and smile. In his later years, he loved spending time with his beloved Elaine. They could always be found traveling visiting family and friends or watching Western movies at their home in Wallingford, CT. The family will receive friends on Saturday, January 11, 2020, from 9 a.m. until the time of service at 11 a.m. in The Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home (Clancy Funeral Home) 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven CT with Committal and Military Honors to follow at East Lawn Cemetery., East Haven.
