Ed was known for his courage and perseverance while managing heart disease for these last twenty years. His indomitable spirit in the face of adversity touched the lives of many. Ed was loved greatly by his friends and family members.
A patient listener and keen observer, Ed was a man gentle in spirit who chose his words with care. He spent many treasured summer days on Friends Lake surrounded by his beloved in-laws who enjoyed his kind nature. Ed’s greatest joy was being with his wife and children as they delighted beyond measure in their grandchildren.
Ed was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, John Mach. He is survived by Eleanor, his loving wife of fifty-two years; and his cherished children, Christopher J. Mach and his wife Stacy of Dallas, Texas, and Laura A. Campbell and her husband Charles Campbell of Waterford, NY.
