Edwin Saylor Colegrove, 91, of Uniontown, Ohio passed away on November 14, 2019.  He was born July 20, 1928 in Akron, Ohio.

Ed joined the Army Airforce in 1945 at the airbase in Illinois, where he met his future wife, Helen.  They continued talking and spending time together throughout his active duty, until his discharge in 1948.  In March of 1949, Helen came to Akron where she joined Ed and they were married March 19, 1949.  Together, they enjoyed dance lessons and never missed a dance to the 1940’s music. They had one son, Wayne Edwin Colegrove, whom they lost July 21, 2101.  This was a grief that never left them.

Ed retired from Goodyear Tire and Rubber, after 40 years of service.  He was a life member of VFW Post 3383 in Akron, where he served on the burial team for veterans and was also a life member of the Army and Navy Club.

Together with his wife, Helen, he is survived by daughter-in-law, Leah Colegrove; grandchildren, Allison (Timothy) Morse, Edwin “Eddie” Colegrove; great-granddaughter, Braelynn Morse.  Also surviving are Dee, Adam, “Little Brother”, four nieces and their families, and many cousins; friends, Kenny, Mike, Sonny, Butch, Vyonne, Bob and Mary.

In honoring Ed’s wish, there will be no visitation or service.  In remembering Ed, he asked that kindness be spread to someone.  Any and all acts of kindness will be very much appreciated.

The family wishes to extend a very special thank you to their Springwater and McConnelsville friends for all the help, love, and support shared.

The family has entrusted Ed’s care with Hecker-Patron Funeral Home, Uniontown.
