Edward J. Frueh, age 76, formerly of Canton, OH, passed away Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at Riverside Methodist Hospital.
Ed was born on September 15, 1942 in Akron, OH to the late Theodore and Bertha (Bay) Frueh. Ed recently moved to Sunbury to be near family after being a longtime resident of Canton. He retired after working many years as a Foreman with the former Empire Corporation.
Mechanically inclined, he was good with his hands and at his best when finding something to fix. He enjoyed a passion for renovating lawn tractors, especially Cub Cadets earning the nick name “The Tractor Guy” in Canton. With a passion for cars and anything that moved, he was described as a country boy at heart. Strong, hardworking, and the first to offer a helping hand, he was always there to give advice and help solve problems.
He loved his family, the ocean, anything red, a good steak dinner, and Cub Cadets, as well as time spent in his barn workshop but most of all being with his treasured family.
Those left to cherish his memory include his beloved wife, Elaine (McGonigal); daughters; Sherie (Dan) Dearth of Stephens City, VA, Michelle (Paul) Zarlengo of Sunbury; grandson, Andrew Dearth; doggies, Susie and Tina; as well as Dean (Mary) Davis and family of Canton who was like a son, and numerous dear friends including; Dell, Ronnie, Frank and Anita.
