Edward William Falk, 58, of Lititz, and formerly of Picture Rocks, passed away from injuries sustained in an auto accident on April 14, 2017, at Lancaster General Hospital.

He was born on April 17, 1958, in Williamsport and was one of nine children to parents James and Shirley Falk, formerly of Picture Rocks. At the time of his passing, Ed was surrounded in the love of his large extended family and friends at his side.

Ed was a 1976 graduate of Hughesville High School and after high school enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served aboard the USS Truckee and USS Puget Sound, Norfolk, Va. He then attended Williamsport Area Community College, worked as a journeyman electrician and was a member of IBEW Local 743, Reading.

Ed was an avid outdoorsman that loved to fish, hunt, camp, and travel with Pete and Bud, his faithful dog companions that brought him pure joy. Eddy was kind-hearted to all that knew him and tirelessly offered his help to neighbors, coworkers, and family. He was a lifetime member of North Mountain Sportsman Association and pursued his passion of the outdoors roaming on the property of his family in Unityville. Ed had a number of passionate hobbies that he enjoyed including motorcycles, cooking, gardening, woodworking, and searching for vintage treasures at local flea markets. His hobbies often became gifts that he showered on those he loved.

Surviving is his mother: Shirley Falk, Hughesville; and loving partner: Dolores Miller, Lititz; and her son: David, Manheim. Ed was a “big brother” in a large clan of brothers and sisters, who will deeply miss him in their lives: Jeffery (Mary Beth) Falk, Lori (Billy) Tomlinson, Pamela (Allan) Singer, Timothy Falk, Barbara (Robert) Masucci, Paul (Crystal) Falk, Sandra Falk, Susan (Michael) Bigger, and his 10 nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father: James Falk.

The family hosted an informal celebration of Ed’s life at Lititz Spring Park, the Boy Scout Pavilion on April 22.

The family offers a special thank you to the trauma unit of Lancaster General Hospital and Gift of Life Donor organization for their expert care and compassion in their time of need.
