Hello to the Families of Edward A. Sarra. Condolences to you all...Especially Joey, Dama and good friend Diana Dodge! My Uncle Ed was a good hard working man who had a unique sense of humor his wife my Auntie Ann was so cool and they had a good run of 75 years of marriage! My mom Sue would get into projects with her brother and someone could possibly loose a finger! Ed worked for many years with his brother Benny as a union boilermaker & pipe fitter. I miss my Departed Relatives. For the McLellan families and 😗 cousins from CT I am saddened by Uncle Ed's passing but am glad he is with his dear wife. My prayers again go out to Ed's immediate family sister Liz and his kids grandkids and great grandchildren!]

To the Sarra Family

Im so sorry to hear of dads passing. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

I have many fond memories of dad over the years. Wether it was while working a water job or him stopping by while I was working and just having some good old conversation.

Mr. Sarra, I know you would always correct me “Ed, it’s Ed” your a dam good man, old school, cut out of a different cloth.

During our conversations, some great pipe fitting stories for sure, you spoke from positive and negative life experiences, you were legit, no rounded edges, straight up coming at yah.

There were times Joe might have thought you and I were slowing down the job by chatting, He’d come flying off the backhoe and you would say “ god gave you a mouth use it, you think I’m a (expletive) mind reader” 😂 you were the man Mr. Sarra , straight up, no ice not even chilled. I miss those days for sure.

Ed I won’t say goodbye my friend, see yah on the other side .
RIP 🙏🏻
