Obituary for Edward James Fuss

MESA, Ariz. — Edward James Fuss, of Mesa, passed away Tuesday (Oct. 16, 2018) at the age of 87.

He was born Sept. 6, 1931, in Salamanca, N.Y., to Neil Starks and Lela Thelma Schutt Fuss.

He proudly served in the United States Army, during the Korean war, and was honorably discharged on June 16, 1954, at the rank
of sergeant.

Edward worked for many years with SJL Construction of Arizona, working on and installing underground pipelines.

In 1979, Edward met Nancy Hedlund at a roping competition in Arizona. Their very first date was attending Family Bible Church
in Mesa, where they were married several months later on July 14, 1979.

Edward was an avid football fan and enjoyed watching both professional and college teams. He also had a love for animals, especially
his dog, Spike, who went everywhere with him, until Spike passed away. What meant most to Edward though, was the time he was able to spend with his family; they meant the world to him.

In 1995, he joined the East Valley Church of the Nazarene in East Mesa, which he was a member for 23 years. During those 23 years,
Edward served on the church board.

Edward is survived by his loving wife, Nancy Hedlund Fuss; daughters, Deb Thomas, Cindy (Rick) King, Lori Wright, Amy (Ronnie)
Quintana and Ruth (John) Wittrock; his stepson, Robert Hedlund; 15 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and many friends.

Friends may call from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 24 2018) at Mentley Funeral Home Inc., 411 Rock City St., Little Valley,
N.Y. Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. immediately following at the funeral home.

Burial with military honors will be in Little Valley Rural Cemetery.
