Edward Shirvis

Fremont - Edward Shirvis, 90, died on May 14 in Pontiac, Michigan. Ed was a long-time resident of Fremont. He was born on January 23, 1928 in Kiev, Ukraine and immigrated to Fremont in 1956. He was employed at Clauss Cutlery for 39 years. He is survived by his spouse of 65 years, Traute (Lazarus), son Christopher, daughter Tricia (Colliflower) and grandchildren Thomas Colliflower, Aerna Colliflower, and Andrew Shirvis. Ed and Traute moved to Michigan in 2012. Everyone who knew him loved him. He was a hard worker and ingeniously performed his own maintenance and repairs on anything mechanical or electrical, or electronic for as long as he was able. He was an avid sports fan, and kept current with our world via his treasured radio. His faith was strong and he was a member of the Williams Lake Church of the Nazarene, which loved him dearly. Visitation will be Thursday May 17th from 5pm to 8pm at Simpson-Modetz Riverside Chapel, 5630 Pontiac Lake Rd, Waterford, MI 48327. Funeral and internment will be on Friday, May 18th, at 11am at Williams Lake Church of the Nazarene, 2840 Airport Rd, Waterford, MI 48329.
