Edward M. Walsh was born on March 19, 1949 to John Walsh Sr. and Genevieve Walsh in Ossining, NY.
He worked at BOCES in New York as a Custodian until retiring. During his retirement he loved working on his house and going to car shows. He also loved learning history and fixing cars with his brothers, but most of all he loved spending time with his grandchildren.
His partner Carol Bradbury met Edward while they both were attending the Putnam Hospital fair. Since then, they have been by each other's side for 23 years.
Edward and his former spouse Carol Kennedy lovingly raised 2 children in Dover Plains, NY. Dad will be dearly missed by his children and grandchildren.
Edward is survived by his partner Carol and his two sons and their families; Edward Walsh, Scott Walsh as well as his 2 grandchildren Aubree and Layla Walsh.
Edward will be deeply missed by his siblings and his numerous nieces and nephews, and the rest of his large extended family. His absence will be felt year-round, but especially during the family's regular large gatherings which will be bereft of his stories, jokes and warm presence.
Calling hours will be held at Delehanty Funeral Home on Wednesday, April 13, 2022 from 3PM-5PM.
