Edward Gardella older

Oct. 1, 1917 — April 9, 2013

Edward Gardella, 95, of Shingle Springs, Calif., passed away peacefully on April 9, 2013, at Marshall Hospital in Placerville, Calif. Born Oct. 1, 1917, in Oneonta, N.Y., the son of Agostino and Celestina (Rosasco) Gardella, he married Erna Baumann on Sept. 7, 1947, in Sacramento, Calif.

Ed was preceded in death by Erna, his loving wife of 55 years; their son, Roland Gardella; four sisters; and four brothers. He is survived by two daughters, Linda Brown (Dave) of Placerville and Charlotte Kosena (Tom) of Cameron Park, Calif.; and four grandchildren, Ben Brown, Molly White, Cathy Simko and Kimberly Mugg. He is also survived by five great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Ed served in the U.S. Air Force during World War II, played football for the Air Force team and retired after 20 years of service. He retired after 22 years of service from the army Depot. He was a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church in Placerville, the Saraband Dance Club and the Swiss Club. He was an avid sportsman, including bird hunting and fishing with Erna. He was an accomplished ballroom dancer. A history buff with amazing recall, his stories and recollection of his upbringing and military service years were of great fascination to all who were blessed to share time in his presence.

A mass will be held Friday, April 19, at 10 a.m., at St. Patrick Church on Sacramento Street in Placerville. A reception will follow. Burial will begin at 2 p.m. at Mt. Vernon Memorial Park, 8201 Greenback Lane in Fair Oaks, Calif. Donations in Ed’s name maybe made to the El Dorado Humane Society, 777 Pleasant Valley Road, Diamond Springs, CA 95619.
