Edward George Tutkovics, 81, of Lorain, passed away Monday, December 18, 2017, at his home.
Ed was born April 25, 1936 in Lorain, OH, the son of Julius and Elizabeth Tutkovics (née Molnar). Ed graduated from Lorain High School and then served in the National Guard. Ed worked in parts sales at Fruehauf Trailer Corporation for 37 years until it closed, and then worked as a warehouse supervisor at Lorain Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) for 18 years.
