Edmund A. Aniszewski

A lifelong resident of the city, Edmund was a graduate of St Hyacinth’s academy as well as The Industrial High School, where he was the starting center on the men’s basketball team.

Shortly after graduation, Edmund joined the US postal service working as a letter carrier. His career was cut short by World War II as he enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving as a radar technician both on an aircraft carrier and on a destroyer, affectionately referred to as a “Tin Can.” After the war ended he resumed his career at the post office, only to be called back to again serve his country during the Korean Conflict. Ed was proud of his service and in particular, being referred to as a “Tin Can Sailor.”

Once the Korean Conflict ended, Ed returned to the post office where he worked for 40 years retiring in 1984. Ed was known for his great personality, serving the “Dutch hill” and Dunkirk business district for that time period, known as “Eddie the mailman”.

On Sept. 9, 1950, at Sacred Heart Church in Dunkirk, Ed married his dream girl, Marie Brown and they raised five children in Dunkirk. They loved to travel and went on many island vacations with their friends and family vacations by car, visiting most of the continental United States.
