Edward William Milisits II, 68, of Bethlehem, passed away peacefully at home on January 8, 2022. He was the beloved husband of Stephanie (Case) Milisits with whom he shared over 36 years of loving marriage.

While with the EASD, Ed served as the Director of Choral Activities and the K-12 Music coordinator for the district.
