Ed Chergoski

  Edward John Chergoski of Ventura, CA., died suddenly Tuesday Oct 21, 2008. He was born Oct 26, 1951, in Streator Illinois, to Edward and Frances Chergoski and had been in Venrura for 30 years. Ed is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Karen, daughter and son-in-law. Nanette and Brian Crane, son, Christopher and wife Kristin Ehret, granddaughters, Kylie and Tyler Crane, all of Ventura, and family members in the midwest and many, many friends in Ventura, Crystal City, VA., area and around the world.   Ed was preceded in death by his parents.   Ed loved reading, computer games, music of all styles, and spending time with friends. These loves have been passed to his children and grandchildren. Ed served in the Navy for four years. Upon completion he moved to Ventura where he became an offshore Navigator for a local research company. For over 20 years he has been a civil servant for the Navy, starting his carreer as a logistician, and most recently a program manager for NAVSEA TMDE 04RM program based out of NSWC Corona. Ed received many awards, such as the Dept of the Navy Meritorious Civilian Service Award. The family would like to thank his Navy family and all our family and friends far and wide for their support, care and concern.

Ed had a long career in the Navy, mostly as a civilian employee. He died last fall of a heart attack. His wife, Karen (Simon) and his 2 kids, Nanette and Chris, live in Ventura, California. Unfortunately, Chris has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Even though we were cousins, we didn't keep in touch which I regret--all the notes and memories from his friends and colleagues indicate that he was still the funniest guy in the room, one of the nicest and absolutely dependable and great at his job.

Ed was a really nice guy. We hit it off great and he will definitely be missed. But if I know Ed, he left behind many stories that can be told for the next 50 years. Anchors away big guy.

Eddie was my neighbor and first boyfriend back in 2nd grade, I think. We were always picking on each other as young kids will. What fun we had always teasing and laughing. He actually gave me my first ring, unfortunately it was his sisters and had to be given back. He was a special person and I have always wondered what happened to him. I'm not surprised he had a great life with a happy family and was a friend to many. Such a sad ending to such a fun loving guy. May you be at peace, Eddie.
