Edward Buhler, 68, of Pawling, NY and Lexington, VA, passed away Saturday, March 27, 2021 at Rockbridge Community Hospital due to complications of ALS. Born on September 20, 1952, he was the son of the late Charles and Anna Buhler. He was number ten out of twelve children.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his beloved high school sweetheart and wife M. Catherine Lee Buhler (d. 2017), a son Edward Lee Buhler (d. 2017) and two brothers.
Edward was born in Bronx, NY and raised his family in Pawling, NY. His love for Catherine was undying. He was a devoted father and grandfather.
Edward was an electrical lineman and chief for NYSEG from 1971-2012. He enjoyed family trips to Florida to go to Disney World (a passion of his wife) and to visit his siblings. He loved to garden and watch race car driving. He was very intelligent, and was quite the “MacGyver” handyman. His family remembers watching Jeopardy with him each night and admired how he could get most, if not all, of the questions correct. After retirement, along with his gardening, he enjoyed restoring and showing antique tractors, with the help of his son. He was kind and generous to his family and friends.
Surviving are his daughters Jessica Lee Buhler (Michael Singleton), Amanda Lee Buhler (Chris Taborsky), Rachael Lee-Buhler Mann (Aaron Mann), two grandsons Slate Singleton and Riley Mann, four brothers, and five sisters.
In lieu of flowers, gifts can be made in his memory to Boxerwood Nature Center & Woodland Garden, 963 Ross Rd. Lexington, VA 24450.
Services will be held virtually, Friday, April 2nd, at 5:30 pm.
