Ed Kunc passed away suddenly on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 in Clermont, FL at the age of 76 years.  Born in Tarentum, PA, he was the son of the late Mary and Paul Kunc and was preceded in death by his two sisters, MaryAnn and Teresa.

He spent 36 years as a math teacher for Shaler Township (Pittsburgh, PA), and ran a successful landscaping business employing students after school and during the summers.  He and his wife, Donna, relocated to Summit Greens in Clermont, FL in 2003, where they became part owners of The Crooked Spoon Gastropub with their daughter Rebecca Saelg and her late husband, Steven.  Ed was an active member of the Summit Greens community. He served as President of the tennis club, on various other boards, and regularly played cards with friends.  His greatest joy was traveling anywhere he could with his wife and family.

Ed is survived by his loving wife Donna of 53 years; 3 children Douglas (Karen), Rebecca, and Donald (Christina); and grandchildren Haley, Jackson, Jacob, Julia, and Samuel.

He will be remembered as a faithful, hard-working, fun-loving, pillar of his community, patriarch of his family and a man who taught life lessons as well as math lessons.

Mass will be celebrated in his honor on Tuesday June 30, 2020 at 11:00am at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church (720 12th St. Clermont, FL 34711).

    Donna and family,
    I was so sorry to hear of Ed’s sudden passing. I enjoyed working with him at SAIS. I also remember many Friday nights with him and the ski club at Seven Springs. How crazy were we to take 250 teenagers there every Friday night to ski?! As you may recall from his stories, we spent a fair amount of time in ski patrol! After he retired, we enjoyed going to Universal Studios with him and Jackson for a day. He was always kind, caring and sociable. Thinking of you and the family during this difficult time. Sorry that I will be out of town for the gathering at North Park.

    Ed left such an impression on so many people on so many levels. His work ethic was outstanding. He instilled that to me personally while helping build the edition to their home in Shaler. I've had the pleasure of having some great men in life growing up and Ed is one the very best hands down. Gone but never forgotten
    Rest in peace Sir.

    I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I remember being fascinated by being in Mr. Kunc's math class, with Becca. He was a wonderful teacher and so welcoming and warm and wise when we were just hanging around. Love to you all, Amanda Zadroga Brown, SAHS '92

    So sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. He was a great mentor when I was a new teacher starting out at SAIS in the math department. I enjoyed catching up with him once in a while at sporting events for the grandkids. Thinking of your entire family during this difficult time.

    Ed and I worked together on many projects at Shaler Area School District. We developed curriculum and designed courses for our students. I was the Mathematics Department Chair in Mathematics at the High School and Ed was the Department Chair in Mathematics at the Middle School. Ed worked very hard on all these projects and was serious about making things better for our students. We had many lunches together while working on school projects where we discussed our work and our families. Ed was very proud of his children and loved his wife dearly. He was a good man and was very positive about all we did. My wife and I also did things socially with Ed and Donna. I will always remember him as a very good man who worked hard on his job and was a good family man. Rest in peace Ed.
