Edward was born on July 16th, 1928 to Frank and Mary Skicki (Majecka). After moving to the U.S. from Poland in 1912, Mary and Frank established the family home on Wood Street in Chicago, IL.

On March 12th, 1941, Ed enlisted in the United States Army.  He was honorably discharged XX/XX/XXXX. When Ed wasn’t busy taking a walk or visiting with neighbors, he could be found at Hawthorne Race Track cheering on his favorite horses. He was also very active in his church and was a parishioner at Sts. Peter and Paul for many years. 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Mary, two brothers, Chester and John Skicki, and beloved sister, Dorothy Skicki. 

He is survived by life-long friends, Diane Thomason and husband Bruce, Theresa Bryk and late husband Edward, nieces, Amy Skicki, Julie Reierson, and Sara Powell, and many others who will cherish his memory.
