Obituary for Edward J. Taraskewich Sr.

SEYMOUR, CT: Edward J. Taraskewich, Sr. Our Dad Ed Taraskewich passed away on October.5th. Although we are so sad at this time, we are comforted that he is reunited with the love of his life Myrna.

He was employed at BF Goodrich, Sponge Products & Seymour Specialty Wire and later at Woodhaven Golf Course where he enjoyed one of his favorite pastimes; golf. He spent many hours fly-fishing with friends and in later years with family.. He took great pleasure in making others laugh. He delighted in visiting with his grandchildren; Tara, Erin, Katy, Brad, Alek, Larissa, Michael, Kyle & Tessa and his great-grandchildren Lily and Violet. He was quite fond of his daughters-in-law Dianna & Gina and grateful for the support of Jay Gesek.
