Edward “Ed” R. Majka

It is with great sadness that the family of Edward “Ed” R. Majka, age 70, born July 11, 1947, announces his passing on Feb. 2, 2018, at his home with his wife, Marjorie, and his sister Cheryl by his side.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, his family moved to Niagara Falls, N.Y., when Ed was a young boy.

A 1969 graduate of Niagara University, Lewiston, N.Y., he received a commission as an officer in the U.S. Army via ROTC. Once his military duty ended, he was in executive management positions throughout his career at Union Carbide Corporation, AETC (Advanced Environmental Technology Corporation) and Waste Management, retiring to New Mexico in 1998. 

Once in New Mexico, he and Marjorie were Albuquerque Realtors. He also served as president of ESCA (Eastern Sandoval County Association).

Ed is survived by his wife of 48 years, Marjorie; his sisters, Cheryl Stavins and Janie Harris (Randall) of Houston, Texas, and Jo-Anne Majka (Russell Smith) of Albuquerque; and his lucky No. 7 rescue dog, Keesee.

In lieu of flowers, Ed asks that those who desire may make a memorial donation in his name to Watermelon Mountain Ranch Animal Shelter. Mailing address is 1512 Deborah Road, Rio Rancho, NM 87124, or donate online at wmranch.org. Please indicate the donation is in memory of Ed Majka and to notify family of donation.

A special thank-you goes out to Dr. Wadih Arap and staff and the pharmacy employees at UNMCC, Heartland Hospice Care, FRENCH — Westside and Father Timothy Donovan of Our Lady Queen of Angels Church for their wonderful care, personal concern, expertise and professionalism in assisting us during this journey.

Ed was dearly loved, and he loved dearly; he will be greatly missed.
