Edwin “Ed” Jay Tripp, 76, of Johnson City passed away from COVID on September 9, 2021. He was predeceased by his parents Robert and Doris (Waterman) Tripp; his brother Robert and Lila, his special friend for over 20 years. Surviving Ed are his siblings Ronald, Mona Nedlik, Judith Kavleski, Jean (Don) McRorie, John, James (Barbara), Janet Williams, Pat Molnar, Richard (Antonie) and Steve (Deborah). Ed is also survived by many cousins, nieces and nephews. Ed had many interests from walking, cooking, baking, reading, music, movies to his biggest love, baseball. He was taught by his father at an early age to score baseball games. He scored his Yankee team faithfully up to this, his last season. He loved everything Yankee especially going to their games and had an uncanny ability to quote baseball statistics and trivia. He loved his family’s Thanksgiving outings to North Carolina and cherished his memories of these events. Ed was a very friendly person and would say hi to all he met. He enjoyed playing shuffleboard on Thursdays with his new friends at the Senior Center. He valued his peers and staff at Achieve, “his workplace” and was grateful for all their help, support and care. Their many outings to help in the community, party nights, and numerous activities over the years enhanced the quality of Ed’s life. The family wishes to thank Achieve for being in his life. A Funeral Service will be offered on Monday at 11am at the Barber Memorial Home, Inc., 428 Main St, Johnson City. Burial will be at Roscoe Riverview Cemetery in Roscoe, NY. The family will receive friends on Monday from 10am until the time of the service at the Barber Memorial Home.
