Edward Joseph Senicka

January 29, 1959 – August 22, 2015

“Big Ed”, a long-time Tahoma resident, passed away on August 22nd _ he was 56 years old. Born in Oakland, California, on January 29, 1959, he grew up in San Leandro, California. He moved to Lake Tahoe in 1982 to start a better life. He worked at Sierra Boat Company, Obexer’s Boat Company, and successfully started his own business called Edward’s Mobil Marine. Ed loved working on boats! During this time he also worked for Placer County as a mechanic and heavy equipment operator. Ed loved to read books, fishing, camping, and gardening. Most of all he loved people and always helped anyone who asked when he could; his heart was huge and loving towards his “Tahoma” family at West Shore Pizza, his favorite place. On Wednesdays he loved to play Trivia. He was very intelligent and answered the questions right. He is at home now with Jesus in his eternal home. We are going to really miss Ed here in Tahoma. He has left us with great memories and has touched us all. He was an amazing Dad, husband, brother, and friend. He is survived by his five sisters, Cynthia Senicka of Pocatello, Idaho, Catherine Nivision and Mary Philan of Frankfort, Kentucky, Laura Roberts of San Leandro, California, Margaret Psenicka of Everest, Washington, and his brother Thomas Psenicka, of San Francisco, California, and ten nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his former and only wife Melissa Sisco, step-daughters Noell and Katelynn Cochran of Lake Tahoe, and four grandchildren, and many, many friends in Tahoma, Tahoe City and Kings Beach. We will miss you our “gentle giant” until we see you again in heaven.
