Edward J. “Big Ed” Pastrick, 70, of Kalamazoo, passed away Thursday, February 4, 2021 at home.

Arrangements are entrusted to Starks & Menchinger Chapel, St. Joseph. Due to COVID-19, Celebration of Life Services will be planned and announced at a later date. Yes, it will involve Italian food. Memorial donations in Ed’s name may be made to Primed 2 Fight – – an organization that meant so much to him. Those wishing to sign Ed’s Memory Book online may do so at

Ed was born July 24, 1950 in St. Joseph to Edward J. & Marie (Bertuca) Pastrick. He graduated from St. Joseph Catholic High School, class of 1969. Ed was employed for the majority of his career as a salesman for various auto dealers in the Benton Harbor, St. Joseph and Kalamazoo areas. Ed loved to cook for his family and friends, especially large amounts of pasta with his mother’s sauce recipe. Ed made friends wherever he went – from the grocery stores to the restaurants he visited, to the vet’s office while caring for his spoiled canines, to the healthcare staff he encountered along his medical journey.

Ed is survived by his beloved Jodie Schrepper of Kalamazoo; his daughter Stephanie (Bryan) Parker of Dripping Springs, TX; his daughter-in-law Heather Pastrick of Roswell, GA; three grandsons-Connor, Brandon & Kyle Parker; two brothers Tony Pastrick of St. Joseph, twin brother Gene (Peggy) Pastrick of Benton Harbor; two half-brothers Dan & Jerry; half sister Gloria; and many members of Jodie’s extended family. He was preceded in death by his son Geoff Pastrick, his father Edward, his mother Marie Pastrick Olney, his brother Frank Pastrick, half brother Don and half sister Sharon.

A very special thank you to Grace Hospice of Kalamazoo for their tender care and support.

I am so sorry for your loss. I met Ed back in the late 70's when he was working at the Berrien County Friend of the Court Office. He was a great guy to work with and always talked about his wonderful family.

Ed I will miss your weekly calls to check up on me and when I answer the phone the first thing you would say is "are you home" because of the covid19 he didn't want me to go out. I an at peace knowing that you are with your loved ones and free of pain. A special thanks Jodi for sharing her life with you. You always said that whatever was happening good or bad she always made you laugh. RIP Big Ed. until we meet again.

I’m so sad to receive this news. Eddie was always so much fun. I remember winning a dance contest at the Surf Club with him when we were in Junior High. My heart goes out to Gene, Tony and his whole family. Rest In Peace, friend and save a dance for me in the great beyond. Marsha Smith Class of 1969 SJC
