Edward passed away on Sunday, May 10, 2020 at Saint Joseph’s Hospital, East Syracuse, NY. after a short battle with Lymphoma. 

Edward was born in the Bronx, NY on December 16, 1939. He was a proud and loyal member of the New York City Fire Department for over 37 years. He retired in August 1996. 

He was a dedicated catholic who attended Saint Ann’s Church in Manlius, NY. 

Edward’s hobby was his family. He loved spending time with his wife of 49 years, Josephine; 4 children, Tara, Matthew, Erin and Brian; his 6 grandchildren, Skyler, Zachary, Caitlin, Ciara, Abigail and Emma; his son in-law, Douglas and his daughter in-laws, Hande and Kristen. His family meant the world to him and that is what mattered in his life. If he was surrounded by family, he was his happiest.  

Edward served three years in the United States Army beginning August 27, 1958.

Services will be private for immediate family only.

Prayers for peace and comfort for his family. I can't imagine your loss of this wonderful guy Jodi. The last of his generation for our family. The youngest son of Frank Leo McDonald and Delia (Bridget) Dunn McDonald, his sense of humor, character, integrity and deep passionate love for his family will be truly missed. Love you Uncle Eddie.
