Edward “Eddie” Devito

SOUTH CHINA - Edward “Eddie” Devito, 54, passed away Jan. 1, 2019, at MaineGeneral Medical Center in Augusta after a brief but fierce fight with cancer.

He was born Feb. 3, 1964 in Manhattan, New York, the son of Vito E. And Marion (Linerello) Devito.

His friends were his family, and are too numerous to mention, you know who you are, All his women friends he call “Ma,” his guy friends were “Brother.” Those near and dear had their own special term. A few extra special people should be mentioned, his girlfriend, Dawn Cook; Rob Young, lifelong friend from Brooklyn; and Jodi Godin, friend and confidante.

Golf was a true passion for Ed, a long-time member of Natanis Golf Club, and many of his closest friends were his golf buddies as well, such as Wayne Vashon, Mark Gurney and Pat Green. Ed wanted to also mention John Olafson and Cindy Green were also close friends.

Ed was a career letter carrier whose career began in Brighton Beach, New York, then he transferred to Waterville and developed a close postal family. His eclectic taste in music, from Metallica to Lyle Lovett, endeared him to everyone who attended the many shows with him. He also enjoyed muscle cars, St. Bernards, cigars and watching sports.

A “larger than life” character in every sense of the word, his humor brought tears of laughter. He was one of those rate individuals who touched lives so deeply he could never be forgotten.

A celebration of his life in true Ed fashion will be held in the spring with a date and time to be announced at a later date.

Arrangements under the direction and care of Dan & Scott’s Cremation & Funeral Service, 445 Waterville Road, Skowhegan, ME 04976.
