Mr. Walsh passed away Friday, Oct. 9, 2020.
He was born April 23, 1941, in Cleveland.

He was an electrician and a proud 50-year member of the IBEW Union Local 38. For many years, Ed served as the Chief Building Official for the City of Eastlake.
Ed was a dedicated public servant, who was honored to hold elected office in the City of Mentor for 35 years having served as a Mentor City Councilman, Mayor and Vice Mayor. He loved the Mentor community and lived by the motto that, “It’s better to be known as a good neighbor than a good politician.” He was a founding member of St. John Vianney Catholic Church and was honored for his public service at the Celtic Ball.

Ed was the beloved husband of over 50 years to Maryann (nee O’Malley); caring father of Edward (Rosemarie), Colleen Curran (Sean) and Sean; and proud grandfather of Edward R., Daniel, Robert, Quinn and Sean, Jr., and Callahan, Kevin and Casey Curran. He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Betty Walsh (Michael); and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

I worked with Ed on Mentor City Council and was always impressed with how hard he would work for his ward. If it would rain hard, you knew Ed would be out on the streets where flooding occurred first. He was very humble about himself and cared deeply about his family. He would rather find solutions to problems than to complain about them. He was quite a role model to me. I have not been to a funeral since Covid-19 arose because of my comorbidities. It hurt not to be able to see Ed one last time and to offer condolences to his family in person.

My deepest sympathy to Ed’s family. Ed was a wonderful man and the best councilman we ever had, or will ever have. He always helped us out with any problems we had. We appreciated that so much! What a great guy who will be missed very much. God Bless

I was so saddened to hear of his passing. Ed was always such a nice man and a great friend to my father (Jim Stack). I can imagine the jokes they are telling together up in Heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with the Walsh family at this difficult time.
🙏🏻, Rita (Stack) Smith
