Edward Charles Allgeier

WILSON —

Edward Charles Allgeier, affectionately known as "Smilin' Ed" and Gandpa. He was born in 1924 and lived his entire life, up until five years ago, on the family farm at 2987 Wilson Cambria Road. He worked the farm his entire life and loved the outdoors. He grew strawberries, tomatoes, and grapes and was very active in the community.
Eddie was a member of the Masonic order for 66 years. He was a Member of Charlotteville Lodge #73 and Past Master of Ontario Lodge #376. He cared about the outdoors and belonged to the Wilson Conservation Club. He and his wife, Marilynn, were active members of Exley Methodist Church in Wilson. A member of the greatest generation, he was a World War II veteran serving in the Pacific from 1944 to 1946 on the USS Keller. He was an active member of the American Legion and participated in the Wilson Memorial Day service as a member of the Honor Guard every year through 2007. After the war he joined Oldbury Chemical in Niagara Falls. After a 30-year career, he retired from Hooker Chemical in Niagara Falls. He continued working for several more years at Waste Management in Lewiston.
He always had a smile and positive word for everyone. During his last five years at the Landing in Brockport, he was known for having a "joke of the day" and sharing it with those at his dinner table.
Eddie was married to Marilynn (Kayner) for 62 years until her death in 2009. He is much loved and will be greatly missed by his family; his daughter, Kathy and husband, Ken Fuller; son, Mike and wife, Carolyn Allgeier; grandchildren, Scott and Todd Fuller, Jackie Ryan and Kiki Allgeier and seven great-grandchildren.
Visitation will be on Friday from 7-9 PM and on Saturday from 2-4 PM and 7-9 PM at the Hamilton and Clark Funeral Home, 270 Young Street, where Funeral Services will be held on Sunday at 2 PM. In lieu of flowers, friends may donate to a charity of their choice in Dad's name.
