St. Johnsbury, VT: Edward B. Shusta, age 56, died at the Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital on Saturday, April 17, 2021, following a month-long decline battling cancer.
Eddie was born in Norwich, CT, on March 3, 1965, son to Robert Edward Shusta and Irma Mae Newella Rist. He was raised and educated in St. Johnsbury and worked as a carpenter & landscaper as well as a mechanic. Eddie was truly a Jack-of-all-Trades who loved tearing things apart that others would say cannot be fixed, and he loved the challenge. He enjoyed gardening, cooking and crocheting, having made many blankets over the years. Eddie was too young to go and will be dearly missed.
Eddie is survived by his mother, Irma Rist, of St. Johnsbury, a son: Eddie J. Shusta in Hadley, NY, his sister: Melissa Talatinian of St. Johnsbury, brother: Jesse Shusta of Greenville, TX, 3 grandchildren: Eddie, Jr., Hannah and Lexi Ann-Marie, nieces and nephews: Jessie “Thorn” Shusta, Aspen Shusta and Kristen Talatinian. He was predeceased by his father: Robert.
