November 21, 1936 - August 2, 2020

Edward A. Mach, age 83, of New Prague, died peacefully on Sunday, August 2, 2020 at Mala Strana Rehabilitation Center.  Ed was born on November 21, 1936 in Webster Township, Rice County, Minnesota to John F. and Beatrice (Benes) Mach.  He attended Most Holy Trinity Parochial School and New Prague High School, and graduated from Northfield High School.  He entered the Army National Guard and served with the Northfield Guard.  He worked for various construction companies throughout his life and also enjoyed hobby farming.  Ed was a member of the laborer’s union and was a self-educated mechanic, who enjoyed working on vehicles and tractors.  He was a private man, who mostly kept to himself and enjoyed television, especially Gunsmoke.  However, he had a sense of humor and during his years at Mala Strana, as he became more comfortable with the staff, he enjoyed the occasional prank played on his caregivers.


Ed is survived by his sister, Patricia (Leo) Wagner of Elko New Market; brothers, John (Dorothy) Mach of Webster and Ronald (Jan) Mach of Richfield; many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.  He is preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Joseph and Stanley.

Uncle Eddie – I am going to miss our visits so incredibly much. You were always my favorite uncle and I remember going to the farm as a little girl and you’d tell me to stay away from the dog because he will bite you but I didn’t listen! I am going to miss seeing your big smile but I know you are in Heaven now watching Gunsmoke and working with your tools again. I love you uncle Eddie!
