Edward J. Longhi | 66
Edward J. Longhi, 66, of 248 Fairview Road, Kersey, passed away unexpectedly, Friday, October 28, 2022 at his residence.
He was born January 4, 1956, in Ridgway, son of the late Robert “Bob” and Joy Sidelinger Longhi. He was a lifelong resident of the area and a graduate of St. Marys Area High School, Class of 1973. He was a die setter for Powdered Metal Products and later retired from American Axle.
On October 3, 1987, in the St. Boniface Church, Ed married Joni M. Gerber, who survives. They just celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary and were blessed to visit their children earlier this month together.
Along with his loving wife, Joni, Ed is survived by his daughter, Megan Longhi of St. Petersburg, FL; his son, Ryan Longhi of Pittsburgh, PA; his brother, John Longhi (Judy) of Kersey; his best friend, Ike Lipsey of Kersey; many nieces and nephews; and by his grand-pets: Lucy, Layla, and Ajax.
Along with his parents, Ed was preceded in death by his sister, Kay Pistner.
Ed took great joy watching and participating in all sporting activities. He was an avid hunter, enjoyed golf, softball and baseball. He would welcome the challenge of fixing anything especially if it was mechanical. He took great pleasure in the little things in life, particularly his daily scratch-off tickets. Nothing gave Ed more joy than spending time with his wife, his children, his family, and his friends.
