Edward (Ed) Jay Finger passed away at home on March 9, 2020 at the age of 74. His wife, children, grandchildren, special friend Pepa and beloved dog Chance were by his side. Ed was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He attended American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts where he received his Bachelor or Arts in economics. He moved to Arizona with his wife, Gale in 1972. Together they built a very successful landscape construction business. Ed moved and expanded the business to Las Vegas in 1988. He retired in 2013 to spend more time with his wife, children, grandchildren and Chance in Arizona and travel as much as possible with Gale.

Aside from his family and friends, he found his greatest love on the ocean - sport fishing. It was a love that began as a child for him and he passed that love onto his two sons.

Ed lived large in all that he did - from his big and genuine smile and laugh - to his generous heart and soul. He was always willing and eager to lend a helping hand wherever he could.

He will be missed sorely by all who had the privilege to know him.

Ed is preceded in death by his mother, Helen and sister, Joan. He is survived by his beloved and devoted wife Gale of 49 years, his children Josh (Nicole) and Arin and 5 grandchildren, Chloe, Landan, Noah, Isaac and Rhett.

Contributions in Ed’s memory are suggested to Hospice of the Valley and East Coast Humane Society.
