Edward Glemboski, lifelong resident of Colchester and beloved husband of Bertha (Case) (Moroch) Glemboski, passed away peacefully and comfortably in his sleep at home on Sunday (March 4, 2018) at the age of 90. Born June 22, 1927 on the family farm in Colchester, he was the son of the late Joseph and Katherine (Pasternak) Glemboski. Ed was a 1946 graduate of Bacon Academy. At the outbreak of the Korean War in the summer of 1950, he was the first draft inductee from Colchester, serving proudly with the U.S. Army.

He took great pride in his home and was always willing to lend a helping hand to family and friends alike. Mr. Glemboski was a Life Member of both the Donald A. Bigelow American Legion Post 54 and the Adler-Boluck VFW Post 6990, as well as the Colchester Historical Society.
