Edward Deloria

WAKEFIELD, Mich. — Ed Deloria, 74, suddenly passed away at home Saturday, Sept. 26, 2020.

Ed was born on Aug. 25, 1946, in Manistique. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Christine; five children, Ed Jr., Cindy (Brian), Dave, Lauri (Bob) and Patty (Cory); eight grandchildren, Alysha, Kailey, Abbey, Trevor, Darienne, Mariah, Ethan and Connor; and one great-grandson, Carter.

Ed retired from the state of Michigan in 1998, after 25 years of service. After retiring, he had several security jobs locally. One of his favorite hangout spots was the Crossing Inn. He enjoyed being outside in his garden, hunting and spending time with his family. Ed was one of the few loyal Detroit Lions fans, despite the many years of disappointment. He will be deeply missed by his family.

A private funeral service will be held Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 11 a.m., preceded by visitation at 10 a.m., at the Lakeside Memorial Chapel, 806 Putnam St., in Wakefield. The Rev. Ted Trudgeon will officiate.
