Edward “Puddy” Scanlon, 83, passed away peacefully on December 12, 2019, at The Mandarin House, Hospice of the Chesapeake. Edward was born on November 10, 1936, in Washington, D.C. to Edward Ignatius and Mary Salb Scanlon. He grew up in D.C. just blocks from the United States Capital with his brother (John Scanlon) and three sisters (Marie Grace, Suzanne Hawley, and Melissa Hebble). Edward married June Andrea Reed (deceased October 2011) on May 18, 1957, at St. Ambrose Church in Cheverly, Maryland. He is survived by his two children, Michael Scanlon, and Elizabeth Salvatore. Michael and Shirl Scanlon are the parents of April Scanlon Gaches (husband, Steven Gaches), Edward Scanlon II, and Kelsey Scanlon. April and Steven Gaches are the parents of Amelia June Gaches, great-grandchild to Edward Scanlon. Elizabeth and Ricky Salvatore are the parents of Anthony and Laura Salvatore.

Ed served as a Commanding Officer in the United States Marine Corps and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the United States Army in 1996. While serving for the United States Army at the Pentagon, he worked on a team helping families who were relocated due to Base Realignment and Closure. In addition to his service to the United States military, he had a successful career in real estate.

Ed, the man who never met a stranger and had a joke for every occasion, has found eternal peach in Heaven beside his wife, June.

Semper Fidelis.

I am so sorry to hear of Ed’s death. My best memories are if Ed and June as members of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Solomon Maryland where they were active parishioners for many years. I also remember when Ed was inducted in the Archbishop Carroll High School’s Athletic Hall if Fame and how proud he was that day and how proud we were at the school to be able to acknowledge his athletic ability as a young man. Ed and June are now reunited in eternal happiness. Praise God!

Puddy was a cherished cousin. I always loved being with him, listening to his stories, laughing at his jokes, and just enjoying the warmth of his personality. He and June were truly a love story, and they had two beautiful children, Mike and Beth. Condolences to you, Mike and Beth and your families. And condolences to my dear cousins - John, Suzie, Reezie and Lissa.
May the angels lead Puddy into Paradise and the saints receive him.
Much love,
Cassie Scanlon Calder
