Edward Slavinski, 70, of Hancock, MA, passed away Saturday, November 5, 2022 at Berkshire Medical Center following a period of declining health. Born in New York City, NY on October 31, 1952, he was the son of the late Edward and Helen Mada Slavinski. Ed was a 1970 graduate of Monument Mountain Regional High School. He was a professional truck driver for various companies which include J. Donovan and Son, AirProducts and Holland Company for a span of nearly 5 decades. On May 27, 1988, he married the former Karen Angelini at St. Patrick’s Church in West Stockbridge, MA. Ed enjoyed attending engine shows, his yard, birdwatching and the simple pleasure of being at home. Above all, Ed’s greatest pleasure was spending time with his family.
Ed is survived by his sons, Edward Slavinski of Hancock, MA and Nathan Slavinski of Hillsdale, NY; a step-son Ricky Jennings of Hancock, MA and step-daughter Kim Jennings of Pittsfield, MA. He also leaves his sister Josie Slavinski Harvey and her husband, John Harvey of Hillsdale, NY, and his brother James Slavinski and his wife, Gail Wool of Great Barrington, MA. Ed also leaves his grandchildren Lonan Jennings, Lyrin DeMaranville, Leilani DeMaranville and his beloved dog, “Ruger”.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to the ICU staff at Berkshire Medical Center and the staff at Berkshire Hematology and Oncology for their wonderful care and compassion shown to Ed.
