Babits, Edward DDS
The Guest Book is expired.
Ed, age 61, passed away peacefully on November 25th surrounded by family. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio to Edward and Helen Babits. He attended the Ohio State University where he graduated from Dental School and met his future wife of 36 years, Kathryn. Post College, Kathryn and Ed ventured to Arizona to begin their lives together. Ed remained a huge Buckeye fan and met many friends through the OSU alumni group of Phoenix. He practiced dentistry at Phoenix Dental Design amongst his "harem" of long time dedicated coworkers. He also taught as an adjunct instructor at Midwestern University and relished the passion and enthusiasm of his first year dental students. Ed, along with family and friends, enjoyed many experiences together including annual ski trips to Colorado, houseboat trips on Lake Powell, road trips to Sedona and many international trips along the way. As written by one of Ed's friends, "the world is a quieter, mournful place today without Ed's resonating laughter, infectious humor, warm hospitality, passionate exaltation of his affection for his family and heritage, magnetic voice and "cup-overflowing' philosophy". Ed is survived by Kathryn, his daughter Lauren, sons Bryan and Bradley, mother Helen, sisters Gayle and Joyce along with several other extended family members. Services will be held at Pinnacle Presbyterian Church on Saturday, December 7th at 1:30pm. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Freetosmile.org.
