Ed, or more lovingly called “Butch” worked for 40 years for the business now known as Berry Plastics Corporation in Macedon, NY. Although he worked consistent 12 hour days for all of those years, with perfect attendance, he was first and foremost a devoted husband and father, and eventually grandfather. He always made abundant time for his family and was in 100% “Dad Mode” whenever his children were around. He brought laughter to the family with his sense of humor, amusing use of accents, pranks and dad jokes. Butch was known for spur of the moment adventures; from big adventures like heading to PA or Ohio for lunch, loading up the van and taking off for the weekend with his family, or evening trips like going to dinner or a movie or to see a comedy show. He placed importance in spoiling his family with activities, adventures, dinners and trips to amusement parks. Butch was a great cook, taking pride in the tradition of making and carving the Thanksgiving Turkey, grilling on a nice day or making apple pies -a tradition now passed on to his grandson, JJ. Butch was a golfer and a car enthusiast. Although he bought and sold many cars over the years, he dreamt of owning a Lipstick Red Monte Carlo.
He will be deeply missed by those who knew him. He always made a point to help anyone who needed, whether they asked for it or not. Butch would gift anything he could to make the lives of others happier. If anyone needed him, he was there in a heartbeat.
His family wishes to invite all friends, family and coworkers to join them in his honor, for Calling Hours from 3-5:00pm on SATURDAY, August 31st followed by a Service of remembrance at 5:00pm, all held at Miller Funeral and Cremation Services of Victor, Inc.
