Edward J. Galenus, 80, a resident of Hickory Hill Road in Bennington died Monday, December 30, 2019 following a brief illness.

He was born in Peabody, MA on June 19, 1939. He was the son of the late Eddie and Florence (Wendell) Galenus. He received his education in Massachusetts.

Edward served in the United States Navy for over 20 years. He served during the Vietnam era and was awarded the Good Conduct medal four times over during his period of active duty along with several other awards and commendations. He later served in the Fleet Reserve for many years.

Prior to retirement, Ed was employed as a master electrician. He had been employed by several different companies including the Baptist Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, the Town of Bennington, the Pownal Tannery, and ending with his retirement from the Vermont Veterans Home.

An avid sports fan, Ed was a loyal supporter of his home state teams and enjoyed watching the Red Sox, Bruins, Patriots and Celtics. He took pleasure in keeping his mind sharp by reading the daily newspapers and challenging himself with crossword puzzles, Sudoku and the like. He was a current member of the Loyal Order of Moose - Lodge 1233 and a former member of the American Legion Post 13, the Fraternal Order of Eagles #1861, and a Life Member of the VFW Post 1332.
