Edward S. Gogolewski
August 24, 1955 – October 25, 2019
Edward “Ed” S. Gogolewski, 64, of Monument, Colorado entered into eternal peace on October 25, 2019. Ed was born on August 24, 1955 in Paterson, New Jersey to parents Felicia and John Gogolewski. He enlisted in the Army and was stationed at Fort Carson. After his honorable discharge he decided to make Colorado Springs home. Ed loved cars and worked at several car dealerships in Colorado Springs. This passion drove him to open his own dealership, Auto Express. So, it’s only fitting he met the love of his life, Debbie Cole, when selling her a car. Looks like they both got a good deal. Ed’s love for cars was overshadowed by his love for family. He cherished Debbie and their children Blake and Alicia. The family enjoyed many summers at the Lake of the Ozarks and Pueblo Reservoir boating and just spending time outdoors. Together they loved traveling, skiing and riding ATVs. Sadly, Ed lost his love Debbie to cancer in 2013. He deeply grieved her death. While sharing their grief, Ed formed a rich and meaningful relationship with Blake, who had just graduated high school and was still living at home. They shared life, both at home and at work. Ed taught Blake the car business and was incredibly proud when Blake took on more and more responsibility, so he could look forward to retirement. Blake and Ed were father and son, but more importantly, best friends. Ed is survived his son Blake, daughter Alicia, and mother Felicia. He was preceded in death by his father John and his brother Rich. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Ed my friend, thank you so much for all your love and compassion. You helped me when I was unable to help myself and not very many people would, you were there for me and I will never forget how wonderful of a friend you have been to me and am more grateful for having known you than I could ever say. I will miss you so very much and I will earn having the pleasure of knowing you and having you as a friend by trying to live as the kind of person you set the example in how you lived your life! You are probably the best friend I've ever had and am so sorry for not living up to my end of our friendship. Thank you so much for coming to say goodbye to me a couple of weeks ago and may God rest your kind soul, you will be missed greatly and remembered wonderfully. Goodbye my great friend I miss you so much and apologize to you eternally. Love, Todd Dalessandro
