MARYLAND – Edward C. “Nick” Stalter Sr., 94, a World War II Navy veteran, Teamster and motor freight driver, passed away peacefully in his sleep Sunday morning, Oct. 20, 2019.
He formerly lived in the Town of Maryland.
He was born on Feb 2, 1925, in Doodletown, Rockland County. He proudly served in the Navy on the LST 294 during World War II. Ed was a Teamster for 44 years as a driver for Linden Motor Freight.
He married the love of his life, Marie, in Newark, N.J. They had two boys, Edward Jr. and Ronald. Ed cherished his family above all else.
He was a kind and generous man. He’d give the shirt off his own back to anyone in need. He always had a smile on his face. He loved to fish on his boat, the Lost Laker, watch the Yankees play ball, spend his mornings at Dunkin’ Donuts and his Wednesday nights at the Elks Lodge.
He is survived by his daughter-in-law, Susan; grandchildren, Evan, Kate and Sarah; and his great-grandchildren, Sophia, Olivia, Nicholas, Luciano and Lucas. He also leaves behind many special nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Family, friends and others whose life was touched by Ed are invited to say goodbye from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, at the Lester R. Grummons Funeral Home, 14 Grand St., Oneonta. A prayer service will follow immediately at 5 p.m.
