Ed was preceded in death by his first wife, Helen Stewart Partridge, three grandsons, Brad S., Michael, and Justin. The last of his family, he was also preceded in death by siblings, Gladys Noles, Louise Sewell and Calvin Partridge.
Our dear father and grandfather deserves a tribute, but in this unknown time of the CoVID-19 pandemic, funeral services will be private. Please be with us in prayer.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the Third Floor Staff of Shenango on the Greens for their compassionate care.
