VERONA - Edward F. Schaller, 76, passed away peacefully April 14, 2013, at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg.

He was born in the Town of Montrose on March 25, 1937, to Alvin and Anna (Donley) Schaller who preceded him in death. He lived and worked on the family farm on Schaller Road for 64 years.

Ed was a great conversationalist who was interested in everyone and everything. His wit and sense of humor endeared him to almost everyone he met. He had strong views but was always happy to listen to those who disagreed with him. He loved riding his motorcycle and traveling throughout the country. He was an informed and involved citizen of the Town of Montrose, his state and his country. Ed was an unforgettable character who will be missed by his many cousins and friends.

A celebration of his life will be held on Sunday, June 23, 2013 from noon until 4:00 PM at the Montrose Town Hall, 1341 Diane Ave. in Paoli.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in Ed’s name to the Salvation Army of Dane County, 3030 Darbo Dr., Madison, WI 53714.
