Condolences for the family of “Edmond A. Veome”

Condolence from Tom Sutula on June 12th, 2013 2:03 pm

Janice & Family — so sorry to hear about Ed’s passing. I worked with him years ago (70’s & 80’s) when I was with Sears in Chicago.

He was a great guy – very intelligent with a very dry sense of humor. I used to love to rag him about his office. Don’t know how he ever found anything. But he did a great job and was a fine gentleman.

I can hear the Good Lord telling him that he can’t have a bunch of papers on his desk in heaven.

God bless Ed and you all.

Condolence from Kathie Howard on June 12th, 2013 2:14 pm

My condolences to a great man. Praying for the family’s strength in the loss of a really nice man.


Condolence from Jerry and Bob Fuzak on June 12th, 2013 2:19 pm

Dear Veome Children and Families;

Ed and Janice were dear friends for nearly 50 years. Our association, both personally and professionally, will always be remembered. We spent many times together, shared stories about our children, and just generally had a great time whatever the occasion. Ed and I built furniture and Grandmother clocks during evening hours after work when we visited Vermont American. Our clock is still running, and I trust that his is as well. Lots of great memories, and nothing but the highest respect for a warm, hard working, gentle, dedicated family man. We will miss him….but know he is at Peace and finally where he wanted to be: with the Lord and back with Janice at long last.

With Love and Prayers to you all in your time of sadness, but Joyful in the knowledge that he is at Rest.

Jerry and Bob Fuzak

Ed was a dear friend . I was an assistant to Ed on power tool accessories for four years. We shared lots of great Craftsman first. He was a great Merchant and teacher. My heart is with his wonderful family. Clyde Klaus

To the Family of Ed Veome,
I worked with Ed at Sears and was on the receiving end of many of his well merchandised tool programs.He was a prince of a guy and one of those people you always looked forward to seeing at business meetings. You should be comforted in knowing that he developed product and programs that helped countless DIY’ers and professionals proudly complete their projects and make a living using quality tools . He was a real professional!

Condolence from Marc Venter on June 12th, 2013 3:27 pm


I worked several years with your dad as the contact from Waterloo (tool boxes ) when he was the buyer and became a real friend. I had been communicating via email with him since we are both retired. He treasured the cruise you all went on and lived every day to experience new things with his family and tell all how proud he was of each and every one. God’s blessings to you all.What a man! Marc Venter

Condolence from William Brandenburg on June 12th, 2013 3:52 pm

I met Ed back in 1967 when he came from the Western Ave. Sears store to HQ or Parent as it was called then. Ed was a dear friend and fellow worker who never had a bad word to say about anything. After I retired in 1999, I always looked forward to seeing Ed and Jan at our retirement dinners. We shared many wonderful memories which I will always cherish.
My prayers for God’s blessings are with Ed’s family

Dear Jan and Family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Ed was a friend and wonderful person. He will be missed by all who knew him.


Condolence from JIM SZUDAREK on June 12th, 2013 5:18 pm

All the people that knew ED respected him as a leader, friend, confidant,and a dedicated family man. I knew ED at Sears, at parties, on business trips, during coffee meetings, on the commuter train to LaGrange, and on and on.

He was always sincere, funny, honest, helpful, a true friend. I will miss him !

May his family celebrate his wonderful life and remember all the great things that made ED the Loving Person that HE will always be. GOD BLESSED the VEOME Family, then and now.

Condolence from John & Carol Hojnar on June 12th, 2013 7:19 pm


Things aren’t supposed to end this way. Instead, we’re supposed to live a very long, long time and be happy forever. We really wanted to talk with you a little longer, laugh a little more together and hear you tell more funny stories.

You did though live life the right way … a damn good husband, father, grandfather and special friend to all who knew you.

So here’s to fifty pound lobsters and plenty of happy fishing days. Now all we have to do is find a way to fill an big empty place in our hearts.

May God bless and keep you.
Love, John and Carol.

Condolence from Dick Dykowski on June 12th, 2013 10:50 pm

To Ed’s Family,
I was a relative newcomer to the 609 fraternity, so I hadn’t known Ed as long as others. For the few years I did, which were years of reorganization within the company, he handled the uncertainty of a future with his typical positive outlook–never a negative to say. A tremendous “salt of the earth” man who will be sorely missed. My condolences to all,

Dick Dykowski

Condolence from Bill Covino on June 13th, 2013 9:46 am

So sorry to hear about your loss, my thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family.

Love, Bill Covino

Condolence from Dan Skowron on June 13th, 2013 10:15 am

I had the pleasure of working with Ed in D/609. As dedicated as he was to his job, it was never ALL business with Ed. He would always take the time to talk, listen, and lend his wisdom where needed.

My sincere sympathies to the Veome family on their loss. May God bless you all and grant you His peace.

Condolence from Carol Veome on June 13th, 2013 10:22 am

It is so great to be able to say that my “big brother” was the best. He was loyal and loving and always put family first. We were blessed to have him in our lives and he will always be remembered and missed in so many ways.

Condolence from Rena Mulligan on June 13th, 2013 12:02 pm

Dear Janice, Geno and Family,

You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.


Condolence from Bob and Carol Dewire on June 13th, 2013 12:42 pm

I as many of the above people worked with Ed at Sears. Ed was a Giant of a Man that always thought long and hard prior to allowing the words to pass over his lips. He never knowingly allowed words of malice, that would hurt,or disrespect another person. People always liked Ed and had nothing but respect for his knowledge and approach to business and his personal life. A GOOD MAN, seems to best describe his days with us. Everyone’s loss!
Robert J. Dewire

Condolence from Carol Miller on June 13th, 2013 1:59 pm

Please accept my condolence on the passing of Ed. It was my pleasure to work with Ed as his assistant buyer in the early 1990s. Ed was a professional in the business, always the ‘gentle’man, full of understanding and wisdom. Many of us were blessed to know him and we thank God for letting Ed Veome pass through Sears.
May our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, keep you and yours in His perfect peace. Carol Miller, formerly Carol Martin

Condolence from Julius Alberico on June 14th, 2013 12:28 am

To all our Veome cousins,
Wonderful parents make wonderful families and the Veomes are the best. While your leader is gone in body, the warmth of his character and kindness of his heart remain. That hurts now, but he will always be with you. He and your mom created a legacy that never will be broken. Pam and I love you all.

Condolence from Samantha Morley on June 14th, 2013 7:32 am

Janice and family,
Your father was a good man, beloved by all. He serves as a model for you and your loved ones. May you find peace during this time and know you have friends and family who cherish you too!

Dear Janice and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. All that your family did to bring your father closer will be celebrated as you go forward. Blessings be on all of you for all you have done to care and comfort him during this time in his life.

Condolence from Deonna Fritz on June 20th, 2013 12:02 pm

To the Veome family,
I worked at Waterloo Industries and had the privilege to get to know Ed when he was our buyer. I was a young, new kid on the block and he taught me many things about the hardware business. More importantly, he always treated me with respect and kindness. He loved his family…it showed every day. I am blessed to have known him. Peace to you all.

Condolence from Joanne Rutty on June 28th, 2013 2:49 pm

To the Veome family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of cousin Ed, a wonderful man who will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Condolence from April Bonnet (Vuillaume) on July 5th, 2013 2:31 pm

To each of you, I offer my condolences. It is very hard to lose a parent and particularly your last living parent. Now, your parents are together again in heaven. There love and faith was deep as is evident by the family (of you) that they raised. What a legacy and tribute!
Please know that “little Eddie” was always a fun-loving cousin. Always had a smile on his face and a chuckle in his talk! He will be missed.

Deepest sympathy, April (cousin)
