Edward S. Sajdak Sr.

March 22, 2013

Ed, age 81, of Belldons Road, Town of Florida went with the angels on March 22, 2013 to join his family in heaven.

He was born August 1, 1931 in Scotch Bush, New York a son of the late John and Rose Cebula Sajdak, Sr. He was a lifelong resident of the area and attended schools in Scotch Bush and Amsterdam, New York.

During the Korean War, Mr. Sajdak served in the Army.

He was a member of St. Stanislaus Church and its Holy Name Society.

He was self employed for many years in his own business, Trim Builders. He served on the Florida Town Board as Councilman for 32 years. He was also a Committeeman for the Montgomery County Democrats and was a member of the Town of Florida Democratic Club. For many years, he served as an advisor for the Florida Youth Commission and spent many years on the Montgomery County Youth Board.

Ed dedicated 15 years as a coach for the rookie league team of the town. He loved working with the youth in the Town and in the City of Amsterdam. On May 3, 2006, the Youth Commission and the Town Board honored him by naming the new ballfields after him (Sajdak Field). He was totally surprised. As his family, we were thrilled to see that the Town did this for him, as he worked very hard to get the field in shape for the kids to play ball at the field. "Thank you very much".

He was a devoted Yankee fan. He also attended the Amsterdam Rugged Rams football games when he could. In his younger years, he played in the Amsterdam Softball Night League for the Rupsis Grill team, where he was known as "the rabbit" because of his speed. He was also known around the area as the corn and kielbasa man.

On May 23, 1959, he married Joan Brown. They would have celebrated their 54th anniversary this May. In addition, he is survived by two sons Ed, Jr. (Kathy), Harvey (Jackie) and daughter Kathy Foster (Tom). Last, but not least, he is survived by the sparkle of his eyes, his grandchildren Jesse and Janine Sajdak, Gillian and Shanna Foster; one brother Chester (June) Sajdak; two sisters Dorothy Szurek and Florence (Milton) Bryant; a sister-in-law, Edna Sajdak; also several nieces and nephews.

Ed is following his brothers and sisters into heaven: Raymond Sajdak, Bernice Kilinski, Winifred Mosconi, Felicia Lavicka, Clara Sweet and John Sajdak, Jr.

The funeral will be held at 8:15 a.m. Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at the Jendrzejczak Funeral Home 200 Church Street, Amsterdam, New York followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 9:00 a.m. at St. Stanislaus Church with Rev. O. Robert DeMartinis, Celebrant. Interment with military honors will follow in St. Stanislaus Cemetery. The family will receive relatives and friends from 4 - 8 p.m. Monday, March 25, 2013 at the funeral home with the Holy Name Society service at 6:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are requested for a scholarship for youth in sports in the Town of Florida C/O the funeral home.
