Louis "Ed" Edward Comeau, Jr. Obituary

Born on January 26, 1959, in La Plata, MD, Louis Edward Comeau, Jr. (Ed), was called home to the Lord on July 2, 2024, at the age of 65. Ed was preceded in death by his sister, Loretta Comeau and parents, Louis and Laura Comeau. He is survived by his Aunt Yvonne Cooke (Comeau), and many cousins and countless friends with whom he spent much time over the years, celebrating milestones, holidays, and making memories both ordinary and extraordinary. He is most closely survived by two cousins, whom he treated as daughters, and their families: Shannon Butrick-Walters (Micah) and their son Archer, and Haley Butrick and her son Matthew.

After the early loss of his treasured sister Loretta, Ed grew up as an only child. Over the years, he created a family of brothers and sisters from the people he connected with all over the country. Ed had a major impact on those who knew him, even if it was for a brief moment in time. He was truly a one-of-a-kind person and will be deeply missed, always remembered and will continue to be honored.

As a lifelong resident of Charles County and a graduate of Henry E. Lackey High School, he began a career in the construction industry after a brief stint with Briggs Ice Cream. Starting as a laborer, he held a wide range of positions at various companies over the years then earned the title and responsibility of Senior Superintendent for HITT Contracting, where he worked proudly for nearly 20 years. He rightfully earned a reputation as a man who could get things done and was often assigned the most challenging projects which resulted in exceptional success for the company.

Ed held many passions dear to his heart such as patriotism, music, books, art, travel, politics, motorcycles, poker, food, firearms, hunting, and fishing (to name a few). Ed shared his passions with his family, friends, and the community. He regularly donated to countless charities and foundations. Over the years, Ed curated vast and impressive collections reflecting those interests that will be treasured beyond his untimely death.

As a younger man, he covered many miles riding his Harleys in his adventures. While it has been a few years since he rode one of his “hogs”, his love of them remained. He absolutely loved traveling, seeing whatever sights he could and immersing himself in the people and culture wherever his feet met the ground. It is without a doubt that Nova Scotia was his home away from home where he held a love for the water, seafood, bear hunting, and deep-sea fishing at Cape St. Mary’s.

His most treasured passion being a lifelong lover of music, Ed enjoyed not only creating music but also facilitating live music in addition to the enjoyment of listening to it. He played the bass, performed jobs as a sound engineer for live band performances, attended countless concerts to include the gigs of his musician friends, and organized numerous musical events and parties. Ed took pride in the impressive collection of musical instruments and sound gear that he gathered over many years and found joy in allowing others to bring them to life by playing them.

Ed lived his life to the absolute fullest without any regrets, leaving his legacy as a man of patriotism, honor, respect, integrity, strength, perseverance, kindness, generosity, and love. To honor Ed’s life and legacy, the family is planning a traditional Catholic mass and burial, to be followed by a Celebration of Life.

Once services have been scheduled, the family will release the details and welcome you to join us in his honor.
