A. Edward Losier
Colchester – A. Edward Losier, 53, of Colchester, Vermont, passed away surrounded by loved ones on December 24, 2021.
Ed was born in Burlington, Vermont, on September 26, 1968, to Helen Coates Bailey and Arnold L. Losier. Following his graduation from Colchester High School in 1986, Ed went on to attend Champlain College, where he studied his passion, accounting. He married Dayle Main on September 11, 1993, in Colchester, Vermont. In 1994, their eldest daughter Shelby was born, followed by their younger daughter Taylor in 1997.
Ed cherished his family’s heritage of Coates Island, which has been in the family for 150 years. All of his fondest childhood memories were of summers at the family camp with each of his wonderful cousins. He fostered a love for the Island within his children who will carry on his dedication to the preservation of their family’s legacy.
Ed was proud to serve his beloved Town of Colchester as an active member of the Prudential Committee for Colchester Water District #2 for many years.
During Ed’s successful career as Principal of Management Accounting Services, he had the pleasure of providing financial and tax advice to each of his valued clients. He was fortunate to make connections with like-minded people who were passionate about growing their businesses.
While Ed had a successful career, his greatest joys in life were his family and Disney – the happiest place on earth. He also held a special place in his heart for the dogs in his life, most recently his own dog, Parker, and his grand dogs, Winston, Serenity, Stella, and Luna. They will miss their Poppy and all of his snacks immensely.
Ed was predeceased in death by his father Arnold L. Losier.
Ed is survived by his wife, Dayle Losier, daughters Shelby Losier (David Riegel) and Taylor Losier (Declan O’Brien), his mother Helen Coates Bailey (David Bailey), sister Betsy Brown and step-siblings, in-laws George and June Main, sister-in-laws Dana Line (Steve Line) and Dawn Hemenway (Jason Hemenway), brother-in-law Tyler Main (Jen Main), and his many nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to extend our sincerest thanks to Dr. Barry of the University of Vermont Medical Center Oncology Department, as well as the dedicated nursing professionals that assisted Ed throughout his unfortunate battle: Christine, Noel, Ruth, Steph, “first port” Julia, and Christopher, to name a few.
Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. Ohana to you, Ed.
A burial and Celebration of Life on Coates Island will take place in the summer of 2022.
Contributions in Ed’s memory may be made to the Ed Losier Lady Laker Hockey Scholarship Fund, 131 Lake Lane, P.O. Box 900, Colchester, VT 05446.
