Obituary

KOSCHALK, Edward "Ed"
(Age 75)

Ed passed away on Friday, March 18, 2011 after fighting pulmonary fibrosis and lung cancer. Ed was born January 18, 1936 in Belle Vernon, PA to Andrew and Stella Koschalk. After graduation from high school, Ed joined the Air Force. He married Ann Fulton in 1958. Ed retired from the Air Force in 1974, and became a rural letter carrier in Liberty Lake until his retirement in 1998. Ed was very involved with his church, Peace Lutheran, Thrivent for Lutherans, and Meals on Wheels. Ed served as vice president and president in both the local and state Rural Letter Carriers Association. Ed's smile and friendliness will be missed by all who knew him. From him, his children learned honor, dignity, compassion for others, respect, love of God and country. Ed's family was the most important part of his life. Ed was also passionate about his Pittsburgh Steelers and enjoyed traveling with Ann. Ed is survived by his wife of 52 years Ann; his children Cheryl (Dan) Comsia, Cathy (Dennis) Hickman, and Robb (Tammy) Koschalk; and his grandsons Mike, Sean, Steve, Kyle, Keegan and Sam; as well as his mother Stella; sister Shirley; brother Phil and many nephews, nieces and extended family members. A Celebration of Life for Ed will be held on Saturday, March 26 at 1:00pm at Peace Lutheran Church, 4124 N. Harvard Road in Otis Orchards. Pastor Dennis Andersen officiating. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Peace Lutheran Church, Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis or Spokane Valley Meals on Wheels.
