Edward V. Scaramutz, 87, of Louisville, passed away peacefully at his home on February 7, 2013. Born on New York's Staten Island, Ed pursued his dream to become a fighter pilot by joining the U.S. Army Air Corps (which later became the U.S. Air Force). He was among the last class of Army Air Corps Aviation Cadets to complete the program near the end of World War II. By 1960, he had received a Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the highly regarded Northrop Institute of Technology in Englewood, California. Upon graduating, Ed moved to Boulder, Colorado to work at several preeminent aerospace companies, which included work on the cryogenic system for the space program. Ed entered the U.S. Air Force Reserve, and after retiring as a Major, wrote a book based on his military and early life experiences. A longtime member of the Boulder Rifle Club, Ed is remembered by many as a raconteur of tales and adventures throughout his life. He is survived by his loving daughter, Jill. A visitation will be held on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM at Crist Mortuary. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Interment will be held at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 1:30 PM.

Jill, so very sorry for your loss. The bond between a daughter and her Father is unmeasurable I know. Although I never met your Dad, I came to learn a little about him through our 10+ year friendship. He sounded like a driven, strong, and very intelligent man. ( I see the apple didn't fall far from the tree;)
Sending prayers and (virtual) hugs your way.

Aunt Jill sorry to hear about your father. It looks like he has an amazing story. I wish you the best as you get through this difficult time.

We are Bill and Cheryl Hopkins. We don't want this to be a commercial, so We won't name our store. Ed was a loved customer of our store in Lafayette. He and I (Bill) would have long talks about collectible art. He purchased a Danish painting in the early 90's that turned out to be a masterpiece. He was such a student of art, swords, guns, and life. He taught me many insights to the investment world. We will miss him and our hearts go out to his family. Take care , Bill and Cheryl
