Ed was a previous engineer for various pharmaceutical companies prior to going to work for Trans Service in Montgomery. Ed was larger than life. He was kind, thoughtful loving and generous man with a great smile and a great sense of humor. It was that sense of humor that drew people to him, but it was his heart that made us all stay. Ed was always first to check in on everyone with a simple “What’s Up?” or “If you need anything, let me know.” And he meant it every time. Ed loved Nascar, he was especially happy when he got to drive one in Pocono Downs. He loved his Dunkin’ Donuts and hanging out on the deck with a fire and his Budweiser. He especially loved spending time with his little buddy Donovan, and his big buddy Nick with whom he had a special bond with.
He is survived by his loving and devoted wife Paula, his step son Nicholas Devine and his fiancé Lindsay Higinson of Montgomery, NY. His stepdaughter Ashley Devine and her fiancé Jason Waite of Newburgh, NY. Sisters Ellen Ventura and her husband Patrick of Toms River, NJ, Trisha Mackenzie and her husband Jeffrey of Clover, SC. His sister in law Melanie Schnitker and her husband Carl of Walden, NY. Mother in law Irene Cottiers (shorty) of Bloomingburg, NY and Vita Anastasia of Monroe, NY. His grandchildren Donovan Devine and Kayden Waite. Nieces Keri-Ann Ventura, Lauren Woods and Victoria Ashare. Nephews Matthew and Tommy Ashare. As well as his fur babies, Shaggy, Maggie and Mooshie.
