Edgar “Eddie” Sardella, 61, of West Monroe died September 27. Born in Syracuse, NY, he worked as a mechanic and entrepreneur, selling antiques and running his own shop, Not Just Bait, on Oneida Lake. He was an avid sportsman who loved hunting, fishing, and snowmobiling. In his later years he channeled his creativity into metalwork, creating unique sculptural pieces of animals and wildlife.
A man of adventure, his exploits are legendary, from narrowly escaping a snowmobile plunging through the ice and surviving a motorcycle accident in his 20’s, to garnering local fame under the headline, “Truck Becomes Aquatic Vehicle,” after fully submerging his 1978 Chevy pickup at the Oneida Lake boat launch.
He is survived by his loving wife, Cindy (Tulowiecki) Sardella;daughters Michelle Kelley and Danielle Lewis; son AlexSardella; grandchildren Devin Lewis and Winter Monroe;brother Patrick Sardella; his beloved dog, Georgia; as well as many cousins, extended family, and friends. Services will be held at a later date.
