Edward Paul Marcott passed away on November 26, 2021, at Wisconsin Veteran’s Home in Farmington, WI.
Edward was born on November 4, 1946, to Donald and Pauline Marcott. Ed’s mother taught him how to play sports, how to identify rocks, and helped Ed grow. Ed and his sister Kathy were very close. They played football, baseball, jacks, and marbles. Ed loved baseball cards, swimming, diving, and hockey. When he was little, he and a friend were competing to go to the finals, and he purposely let his friend win to go to the finals for marbles. He liked to play with a broom and rocks for baseball and play sticks for guns when he was young. Ed loved fishing and was very good at it. A famous fisherman named Joe Bucher loved his homemade fishing lures. Ed cast his own fishing jigs with a lead pot. Ed was very articulate with making and painting his jigs and would paint each one eight times. Ed was a cook for a children’s hospital, where he would walk the children to baseball games and they would get in for free. Ed was also a cook at a ski resort in Colorado. Ed dove off high cliffs at a restaurant in Colorado that was at water level. Ed was a good cook but also loved going out to eat with his wife Lisa. Ed also worked at a paper mill in Wausau. Ed was a very good bowler and got a 300 ring.
Ed adored his cocker spaniel, Susi. Lisa, Ed, and Susi were inseparable. Susi was with Ed everywhere he went. He took Susi for walks at Marathon Park every day, and Lisa would ask if she could tag along. They would also share their Dairy Queen with Susi.
Ed loved fishing trips to Canada. One fishing trip to Canada, Ed was barefoot on the dock when the boat rocked. This caused him to lose his footing and he stepped on a fishing jig. He had to walk up 25 stairs to get to the cabin but didn’t have a cell phone. He and Lisa had to wait for the neighbors to get back to their cabin to call the main office down the road. They had someone that was skilled at taking fishing hooks out of the skin, but they had to wait 20 minutes for him to arrive by boat. Lisa was worried she would have to drive them to a hospital when she’d never driven in Canada.
Edward is survived by his wife, Lisa Marcott, stepson, Joshua Frederick, one stepdaughter, sisters, Kathryn DiPalma, Linda Koening, and Laura Kuntz, brother Michael (Amy) Marcott, and numerous cousins and other relatives.
He is preceded in death by his dad, Donald Marcott, his mom, Pauline Marcott, his stepmom, Carol Marcott, one nephew, and several cousins.
