Edwin Ray Shroll, 80, of Oceola, died Monday, January 25, 2021, at OSU Ross Heart Hospital following a brief illness.
Ed was born on November 27, 1940, in Bucyrus to the late Carl and Iva (Wages) Shroll. He graduated from Holmes Liberty High School and then went onto earn his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Ohio University. He spent several years working at a steel processing plant in Steubenville before returning to Bucyrus where he finished his work career at Baja.
Ed loved tinkering with anything mechanical and he thoroughly enjoyed working on his collection of automobiles acquired throughout his life. He was handy when it came to repairing things around the home and he was grateful for the opportunity of being able to provide care for his parents when their health wasn’t the greatest.
Ed is survived by brothers, Don Shroll of Oceola and Gary (Joyce) Shroll of Oregon City, Oregon; nephew, Josh (Kris) Shroll; niece, Erin Shroll; cousins with whom he was close, Robert Loy, Marjorie Brock, Norma Wages Lavonne Vaughn, and Chester Wages.
