Edward W. Skelly, 83 died unexpectedly at home in Sweetwater, TN on December 10, 2021.

He was the son of the late Edward and Wanda Skelly of Callicoon Center, NY. He was born on March 1, 1938 in Brooklyn, NY. In the early 60’s he bought a small farm in Callicoon Center where he raised his family and worked for more than twenty five years. Ed was a military veteran and retired repairman for NYS Bell/Verizon telephone company.

Ed spent many years working in the Adirondacks for the DEC helping to reduce the black fly infestation by treating the larva in the creek beds.

Ed lived life to the fullest. He was a gun collector and advocate who enjoyed reloading bullets and going to competitive shoots and spending time in the woods.

He enjoyed meeting new friends and sharing stories. Ed was always willing to give a helping hand to anyone who needed it. His wisdom will live through his legacy. His sense of humor was unmatched as was his kind words. Ed will live in our hearts and memories forever gone but not forgotten.

A devoted father to four children - Edward (Alicia), Michael (Karen), Wanda (Bob), Elaine (Doug S.), grandfather to seven- Kimberly, Michael Jr (Kate), Kevin, Stephanie (Colin), Tylor, Trevor, Brianna, great-grandfather to two-Emma and Michael III. Ed leaves behind many dear friends up and down the east coast.

A celebration of Ed’s life will be private at a later date.
