Edward E. Colladay died Jan. 24, 1997, after a long illness, at Wynwood, a Sarasota nursing home.

Ed came to us from Exeter Academy. At Princeton he was varsity hockey manager and a member of the Undergraduate Athletic and Interclub Athletic committees and of Cloister Inn.

After graduation Ed worked in the electrical supply business under the auspices of GE in Massachusetts, Washington, D.C., and Wilmington, Del. He later served as a district manager for consumer goods for GE. During WWII, he was assistant supply officer on the USS Boxer in the Pacific theater.

In 1958 he moved to Florida, where he sold prefabricated kitchens and where he served as president of the Civic Assn. of Coral Cove and as a volunteer at Memorial Hospital. He loved boating, fishing, golf, and tennis. In 1996 he moved to Wynwood.

In 1932 Ed married Ruth Lynn, who died in 1975. They had a daughter, Patricia Scharnberg. In 1981 he married May Slattgren. Ed is survived by May, his daughter, and two grandchildren. To them, the class sends its sympathy in the loss of a colorful classmate.
