U.S. Veteran

Burial Date January 4, 2017

Edward G. Bartosz, 89, passed peacefully into eternity on January 1, 2017, ending a faithful life of service to his country, his family, his community, and whoever crossed his path that needed help. Born April 26, 1927 to Valentine and Anna Bartosz, Edward was one of seven children. He grew up in Holyoke and served as an aircraft mechanic in the Navy from January 1945-July 1946 before marrying Grace (Gardner) in 1949. Together they raised six children and he retired from the Chicopee Fire Department as a captain. He worked hard, loved to laugh, took life as it came, and taught and loved by his actions. He is survived by his wife, Grace, sons Steven, Edward, and William, and daughters Sandi Michon, and Tina Fortier, as well as 10 grandchildren (Brooke, Ryan, Amber, Brandon, Shane, Lindsey, Samantha, Amanda, Blake, and Stephenie), and eight great grandchildren. He is survived by his sister Clara, and brother Danny. Calling hours are January 3rd from 4-7:00 at Cierpial Funeral Home, 69 East Street, Chicopee. Funeral/remembrance service is January 4th at 10 at Lifepoint Church, 603 New Ludlow Road Chicopee. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made to the Holyoke Soldiers Home hospice.
