     Edward Alexander Abramowicz was born on October 21, 1957 in Stanley, WI at Victory Memorial Hospital, the son of Edmund A. and Rosemary F. (Gostomski) Abramowicz, Sr.  He was raised on the family farm in the Town of Taft, received his education at Thorp Public Schools, and graduated from Thorp High School in 1976.  Ed enlisted into the U.S. Navy in 1977 and served until his honorable discharge in 1981.  He was united in marriage to Barbara A. Karpinski on June 18, 1983 at St. Bernard-St. Hedwig's Catholic Church in Thorp.  Ed and Barb farmed until 1987, at which time, he went to work for Thorp Equipment in Thorp.  In 2000, he co-owned a business, "Excel Steel Fabrication", in Stanley, which he operated until 2015.  Ed then went to work with his brother-in-law, John Kulesa, at Kulesa Construction, and worked for him until the present time.
     He had many interests, including deer hunting, fishing, traveling, and loved spending time with his family.  But his true passion was flying.  Ed and Barb attended the EAA Airventure, in Oshkosh, for the past 25 years.  At the EAA, Eddie could be heard saying, “There’s nothing better than the smell of jet fuel in the morning.”
     Ed was a member of St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, Lublin American Legion Post #547, and the EAA.
     He had an energy about him that couldn’t be matched.  He was the person that everyone wanted to be around because he was just full of life, and embodied what living every day “like it’s your last” meant.  He always had the biggest heart.  As Ed’s nephew Ben Abramowicz would say, “He is truly someone who will never be forgotten by all who met him.”
     He will be dearly missed by his loving wife, Barbara; three daughters: Erica Abramowicz, Melissa (Cameron) Laidlaw, and Tiffany Abramowicz; one granddaughter: Aurora Laidlaw; his brothers: Paul (JoAnna), Wayne (Tammie), David (Karen), Mark (Lori), John (Rachel) and Keith (Jessica); his sisters: Linda (John), Debbie (Jeff), Judy, Jane, Susie (Richard), Betty Jo (Bryan) and Mary (Jay); numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
     Ed was preceded in death by his parents; his brother-in-law, John McIntire; his niece, Cassandra McIntire; and his brother-in-law, Allen Hastings.
