Edward A. "Zeke" Zeboris, 81, of Walton Lane, Hurley died peacefully at home on Friday, July 5th, 2019 following a brief illness.

He was born in Binghamton, NY on March 14th, 1938, a son of the late Frank and Agnes (Birnaus) Zeboris.

After graduation from Binghamton Central High School in 1957, he joined the US Marines, being honorably discharged in 1960. He joined the New York State Police in 1962, and served in troops in upstate New York and the Thruway Authority, having finally served from the Hurley Barracks, where he retired in 1985. During his 23 year career, he served as a trooper and then investigator with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI), the assignment he enjoyed the most.

Following his retirement from the state police, Ed was employed for over 17 years (1985-2002) as a supervisor with the US Postal Service, assigned at Central Post Office on Cornell St, Kingston, NY.

He was a member of Morgan Hill Gun Club, Mid Hudson Wine Society, Kingston Maennerchor-Damenchor, the Hurley VFW, the Marine Corps League and the NRA.

A patient man, Ed always enjoyed a good cigar and German Brandy with his many friends, and long rides. In his youth he was an avid hunter, fisherman and enjoyed gardening.

He is survived by wife of 30 years, Julia C. (Dennison) Zeboris, one son, Nicholas F. Zeboris of Cottekill, NY, one granddaughter, Nicole A. Zeboris of Kerhonkson, NY, and one sister, Mary Ann (Daryl) Lee of Maine, NY. Many nieces, nephews and cousins also survive. He will be lovingly missed by his cat, Lucky and canine, Ziggy.

In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by former wife Ann E. (Walton) Zeboris, one brother, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Richard Zeboris and one sister, Jean Zeboris.

Cremation was held at Wiltwyck Crematory.

Ed's family will receive friends on Saturday, August 10, 2019, from 12:00 pm to 2:30 pm at the Gilpatric-VanVliet Funeral Home, 339 Broadway, Ulster Park, with a memorial service at 2:30 pm officiated by The Rev.

Dear Zeboris Family - As a new recruit, I was transferred to the Lake Katrine barracks after successfully completing my “senior man” training. Ed was one of those Troopers who would always take time to answer questions from the new kid and offer words of advice and encouragement. Ed had a wonderful sense of humor and just one of those individuals that left a positive and lasting impression.
Our thoughts and prayers for the family as they face these difficult days.

Julia, We are so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. Karl and I enjoyed his company and stories at the Mannenchor. And especially his buckwheat pancakes. May you always remember the good times and take comfort in his memory.

I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ed, don't call me "Zeke" Zeboris starting at the Lake Katrine barracks in 1968. We hunted, fished, played cards, did some shooting from time to time, and even worked together in our capacity as New York State Troopers. "Zeke" was one of the best, always even mannered and ready to share his next adventure with his friends on his days off from work.
I have many "Zeke" stories but they are best told in privacy and not placed on paper. Nothing bad just fun stuff! You will truly be missed by your friends and family. Bless your family during there time of need, and may your soul rest in peace.
