Passed away on June 29, 2013. Ed was born in Neillsville WI, moved to Braidwood, IL when he was 11 where he graduated from Custer-Reed High School in 1948 and he served in the Navy from 1951 to 1955.
Ed was a construction manager for over 45 years working on many buildings in the DC area. His garden was a special place for him; nothing made him prouder than sharing its harvest with others. Going fishing on the Bay, goose hunting on the Eastern Shore was some of his favorite leisure activities, but eating crabs with family and friends topped the list. After he retired he became a member of the BCC- Isaac Walton League and enjoyed the companionship of the many friends he met there.
He is survived by son Edward J. Hnetkovsky, Jr. (Nola); daughter Deborah E. H. Palmer (Richard II) and grandson Franklin J. Hnetkovsky. Ed will be remembered by special friends Dan and Judy Freeman, Marguerite O'Rourke, Judy Fisher and Brian Fisher.
A celebration of Ed's life will be held on July 13 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the St Peter's Episcopal Church, Poolesville, Maryland. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers donations to the Isaac Walton League of America would be appreciated.
