Edward R. Springer Jr.

Edward R. Springer Jr.

Troy, NY – Edward R. Springer Jr. passed away on December 1, 2018 surrounded by his family. Ed was the beloved husband of Patricia O’Neil Springer of 55 years and was the son of the late Edward and Mae Gregory Springer. Prior to his retirement Ed was employed at Morgan Linen Services and The Times Union Newspaper. Survivors in addition to his wife include his children Robert (Christine) Springer, Kenneth (Heather) Springer, Kathy (John Cutting) Springer, Kimberly (Nick) Schultheis, Tara (Bill) Clairmont and daughter in-law Pam Springer; nine grandchildren Michelle (Matt) Michaud, Tanya Lewis, Christopher (Ashley) Springer, Nick Springer, Jenna Westcott, Matthew McGillivray (Brian Hubbard), Olivia Schultheis, Alyssa Clairmont, Keegan Clairmont,  two great grandchildren Judah Lewis and Mason Michaud. Ed is also survived by his brothers and  sisters Barbara (Tom) Powel, Wally (Sue) O’Neil, Frank (Noreen) O’Neil, Peggy (Joe) Rocco, Mary (Gene) Whitney as well as several nieces and nephew and Best friend of Marian Johnson.  Ed was predeceased by his son Edward R. Springer III in addition to his parents.

Ed was a man of many, simple things. He loved reading the weekend comic strips and Bob’s Diner breakfast sandwiches, Snickers, Oreos and anything sweet. He loved swimming, telling stories and whistling along to old songs on the radio. He always wore a smile, and made friends everywhere he went. He loved life and people like nobody else, but he especially loved his family. The world is lucky to have known a man like Edward Springer.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Eddy Village Green, house 14, Hospice and Deacon Bob for their support. Family and friends are invited to visit with Ed’s family on Thursday, 4-7 p.m. at St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church 175 Williams Road, Troy, NY. A mass of Christian burial will be celebrated on Friday, December 7th at 10:00 a.m. at St. Michaels. In lieu of flowers memorial donations to Community Hospice 295 Valley View Blvd., Rensselaer, NY 12144 would be appreciated.
