Edward V. Hanrahan

Edward V. Hanrahan, 91, of Altamont passed away on June 14, 2018. Born in Albany, he attended Vincentian Institute and served during World War II in the US Navy. Ed was a member of Carpenters Local #370 for nearly 70 years. Woodcraft and custom cabinetry were his passion. As a Master Carpenter, many local homes and facilities bear his trademark precision carpentry, including the Governor's Mansion and NY Senate Chambers. He was a charter member of the Northeast BMW Motorcycle Club and enjoyed motorcycle touring and camping with his sons, riding his bicycle and living in the country. A lifelong avid archer in the Iroquois Rod and Gun Club, he took the top archery prize in his division of the NYS Senior Games. Ed was predeceased by his three sisters, Ruth (Al) Shannon and Carol (Joe) Crook of Albany, NY and Mary (Rip) Collins of Pittsburg, PA. He is survived and missed by his 7 children: daughters Lynda of Syracuse, NY, Deborah White of Windsor Locks, CT, Diane of San Antonio, TX, and sons Robert (Marri) Avisa-Hanrahan of Albany, Thomas of Altamont, Brian (Robin) of Red Hook, NY and Jeffrey of Sacramento, CA, as well as 10 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, and his friends. Honoring Ed's wishes, no services are planned. His children will host a private celebration of his life at a later date.


So glad to have had the pleasure of knowing Ed. Such a nice man with a great family. Condolences to the family.
