North Greenbush - Edward A. Gratton, 60, of Winter Street Extension died suddenly Monday, February 24, 2014 at his residence.

He resided in the Troy and North Greenbush areas for most of his life. Ed was a graduate of Troy High School and Hudson Valley Community College.
For the past 30 years, Ed was a dedicated and highly respected employee of Kayser-Roth Corporation in Greensboro, NC.
Ed had a passion for restoring classic British sports cars. He enjoyed talking politics and camping with friends and family. Ed was a wonderful dad who loved, nurtured and supported his family every day. He was a funny, easy going, caring, inspirational man and the guy could fix just about anything he set his mind to.

This spirit and selflessness will never be forgotten by his wife and children that cherished him so deeply.
