Edmund Joseph Paczkowski, 92, passed into eternal life on Sept 6, 2020, at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Dunmore, PA.

He was a loving husband, a caring father, a supporting brother, and a benevolent friend. Born on February 17, 1928, in Dickson City, PA, Edmund was the son of Constance (Kowalski) & Joseph Paczkowski who immigrated from Poland. Edmund was the youngest of nine brothers and sisters. Raised in Dickson City, PA, Ed received his early education at St Mary’s Visitation School, Dickson City, and was a graduate of Dickson City HS. He excelled in both school and sports especially baseball and football. He served during World War II in Italy as a Sargent in the Military Police. When he returned from the war, he was briefly a member of Connie Mack’s Philadelphia Athletics baseball team. Later, he obtained an associate’s degree in electronics from Temple University, Philadelphia, PA. He was married to his high school sweetheart Mary Ann for sixty years and they raised four children. Edmund worked in the electronics component industry as a Production Manager for Automation Components in Peckville, PA. After retirement, Edmund split his time between taking care of his family, golf, and travel. While he was late to take up golf, his athletic ability quickly helped develop his game and he became a force to compete with on the links with his friends. Ed loved to travel and visit with his family and friends. He really enjoyed cruising to the Caribbean & Alaska – he loved his trips to California, Hawaii & Disney. He was the principle caregiver to Mary Ann during her later years and doted on her with exceptional love and devotion. After Mary Ann’s passing, Ed spent time with his children living in Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and California. He always loved to stay active with gardening, projects, and odd jobs and recently became a model shipbuilder! He was an inspirational father who taught the value of commitment, hard work, friendship, and education.
