September 11, 1929 - February 14, 2016
On February 14, Valentine’s Day, a man whose love for his wife, daughters, and grandchildren knew no bounds. Raised in McKeesport, he lived in Blackridge (Churchill) for more than 50 years, and more recently at Sherwood Oaks in Cranberry Township. His joys included his home and his family, good friends, ice cream, martinis, the New York Times, a good book, travel, and thoughtful conversation. After earning his DDS and MS from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, he was a periodontist in Monroeville, bringing his care and intellect to his patients. He could do anything and fix anything, as family, friends, and neighbors will attest, and did so with precision but little fanfare and no ego. He is survived by his best friend and wife of 56 years, Adrienne; his daughters Maureen Terris (Michael) of San Francisco, and Patricia Silverman of Gibsonia; and his sister, Ann Kalin (Frank) of Florida. He took greatest joy and pride in his grandchildren, Spencer, Charlie, and Paul Terris, and Henry and Rachel Silverman. He was preceded in death by his parents and three siblings. Ed taught his daughters to think for themselves, reach for the stars, and live their lives with compassion. A celebration of his life will be held from 2:00-4:00 on Saturday, March 5 at Sherwood Oaks. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Family House.
