Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Edward (Ed)Thomas, age 56, of Old Forge, died suddenly on Friday afternoon while at work.
Born in Moosic on June 12, 1963, and beloved son of parents Reese, Sr. and Elizabeth “Betsy” (Turner) Thomas, Ed was a Riverside High School graduate, Class of 1981. Ed worked as a machinist for the McKinney Corporation of Scranton for 20 years, prior to its closure, before working at NEPA Carton and Carrier Co., Inc. in Moosic for 12 years prior to his passing.
Ed enjoyed camping, riding his motorcycle, and anything else that involved being outdoors. Mechanically inclined, he was a skilled fixer of anything and everything. He lived for the 4th of July where his fireworks display will long remain legendary.
Quiet, easy-going and kind, Ed was always there to help someone in need. He’ll be forever missed by his family and friends.
He is also survived by his loving family: his children, Keith Thomas, Julie Thomas, Kevin Thomas and Olivia Thomas, all of Old Forge; his wife, Lisa Michelle (Decker) Thomas of Old Forge; his siblings, Joanne Samitz and husband Steven of Old Forge and Reese Thomas, Jr. of Moscow; two nephews, Tyler and Adam; and cousins.
A celebration of Ed’s life is scheduled for Tuesday at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with a 7:00PM Blessing service. Friends and relatives are invited to pay their respects from 4:00PM until services.
