Ed was born on June 16, 1948 in Bayside, Long Island, a son of the late John and Margaret (Doughterty) Iseley. Upon completion of nursing school, Ed worked on Long Island until moving to Willard in 1987. Ed’s caring nature led to a rewarding career as a nursing administrator at Dick Van Dyke Addiction Treatment Center until his retirement in 2003.   His steadfast Christian faith and devotion led him through many of life’s hardest tests.  Even In failing health and frailty, he remained strong in his passions; love for his family, love of God and goodness towards mankind. His spirit will live long through his family and the many friends he touched throughout his lifetime.

He is survived by his loving wife, Patricia; his children, E.D. (Mary) Iseley of Webster, NY and Linnet (Howard) McLaughlin of Ovid and his grandchildren, Nora Iseley and Zoe and Ethan McLaughlin; and a brother, John Iseley of Ovid, in addition to a large extended family.
