      Ciolkosz, Edward Lawrence (28 Jan. 1939 - 14 July 2004)

      Edward Lawrence Ciolkosz, age 65, lifelong resident of the town of Thorp, passed away on July 14, 2004, at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire.

      Ed was born on January 28, 1939, in the town of Thorp, Clark County, the son of Louis and Victoria (Opon) Ciolkosz. He grew up in the rural Thorp area and attended area schools. He served his country in the Wisconsin National Guard, active duty in Fort Lewis, Wash., from 1961 to 1962. He was then united in marriage to Julia Derks on October 15, 1962, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Boyd, Wis., and took over the family farm in the town of Thorp, residing there ever since. He farmed with a great passion for the land and all of its surroundings. He was an active member of the St. Mary’s Czestochowa Catholic Church, was a member of the church choir and served as president for the cemetery association for the past eight years. He served as chairman for the town of Thorp for the past five years, and previously as Town supervisor for five years. Ed loved his family very much, and enjoyed being around people. He was also an avid hunter and enjoyed the outdoors. His motto was ?Lead, follow or get out of the way.? May he now be a leader in paradise and sing in the heavenly choir.
