Obituary of Edward C Waite

Edward C. Waite, 74, passed away after a hard-fought battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis on Thursday, March 7, 2024, at his home in Greenwich, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born March 12, 1949, in Cambridge, NY, to the late Alfred and Ruth (McGrouty) Waite.

Ed graduated from Greenwich Central High School and went on to serve his country in the United States Air Force.  He was a combat veteran during the Vietnam War.  Following his return from service, he worked as a communications tech for Verizon. Edward was hardworking, fun loving and made friends anywhere he went.  He loved to talk and was devoted to his family and friends.

Edward was a true outdoorsman; he enjoyed hunting, loved animals, and the beauty of the Adirondacks.  When warm weather came, you could always find him at the pool sunbathing and swimming.  Some of his happiest memories were watching the kids enjoying the same comforts in life he did. Edward honored his family and served this community, with everything he had.  He was a member of the American Legion and lifetime member of the Greenwich VFW Post 7291 and served as its Quartermaster.

In addition to his parents he was predeceased by his son, Edward Brady Waite; brothers-in-law, William (Paula), Robert and Brian Myers; sisters-in-law, Elaine Myers Lindahl and her husband Robert, and Margaret Pett and her husband Bernhard; nephews, Jacob Pett, Robert and William Myers Jr. and niece, Trisha Myers, as well as many other beloved family and friends.

He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Cynthia (Myers) Waite; daughter, Noelle (Brian) Nilsen; daughter-in-law, Keegan Waite; brothers, Al (Dale) Waite, and Randy (Kathleen) Waite; sister, Debbie (Billy) Ives; sisters in law, Donna (Bob) Haney, Helen Myers and Ronnie Myers; brothers in law, Martin (Carol) Myers, Larry (Kathy) Myers and John (Carol) Myers; several beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and in laws.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 4 to 7 pm on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, at Flynn Bros, Inc. Funeral Home, 80 Main St, Greenwich, NY, 12834.
