Edwin Carl Daub, age 89, a resident of Albuquerque, NM since April 2022, and longtime resident of 
Binghamton NY, died peacefully on June 23ʳᵈ, 2022 in Albuquerque. He is survived by his wife of 65 
years, Mini Daub; daughter Stephanie Kuzio and husband Kenneth; daughter Heidi Daub and husband 
Bill Schubeck of Blue Hill, ME; grandsons Tyler Kuzio (Terisa), Elliot Kuzio (Tessa Robinson) all

Ed, born in Honesdale, PA in 1933, grew up on a dairy farm in Cochecton Center, NY, where he was 
raised by his grandmother and aunts after his mother died shortly after his birth. His love for 
baseball came about through many influences in his life. His father coached a local semi-pro 
baseball team, his Uncle Carl played on this team and Ed and his brother spent countless hours 
playing the sport. He played baseball throughout high school and college as well as for the Valley 
Forge aircraft carrier team while serving in the US Navy. He also played for Welcome Lake semi-pro 
baseball in Honesdale Pa, and during his early teaching years, for a semi-pro team in Utica, NY.

Ed's love of all sports led him to State University of New York (SUNY)/Cortland. He paused his 
education for two years to serve in the Navy, then returned and graduated with a BS degree in 
Physical Education, eventually earning his master's in both Physical Education and Athletic 
Directorship from Cortland.

Ed met his wife Mini at Cortland, marrying in 1957. The next six years saw the birth of his two 
daughters and were spent teaching in small towns in upstate NY. Selected highlights from his 
teaching and coaching careers include:

Oriskany Falls: Ed taught girls and boys physical education grades 1-12, and also coached soccer, 
basketball and baseball.

Hudson Valley Community College: Ed taught health, coached baseball and started the college’s first 
soccer team.

King Ferry High School: Ed taught physical education, biology, and coached soccer, basketball and 
baseball. The school’s soccer team won the league championship under his tenure.

In 1963 he accepted a position at Broome Community College in Binghamton NY, dedicating 59 years as 
Professor Emeritus of Physical Education at SUNY Broome Community College teaching physical 
education and coaching championship teams in baseball and soccer. Many students and athletes were 
positively influenced by Coach
Daub's tenacity, dedication, and drive to excel. Even after 'retirement' Ed continued at

Broome in a part-time compacity, teaching both in the classroom and online in the Sports Management 
and Sports Studies Departments through the 2022 Spring semester.

In 1970 he landed the summer coaching position with the Valley League in Harrisonburg VA; winning 
the League championship that year.

Years later, in Binghamton, he was owner, general manager, and coach of the Broome Rangers, a NY 
state summer collegiate team, leading them to a state championship in 1991. This year, and in 
perpetuity, the New York Collegiate Baseball League's inaugural all-star MVP award will be named in 
his honor.

Furthering his baseball career and after retirement from full time teaching, Ed was introduced into 
the world of Major League Baseball scouting. He served 20 years as a professional baseball scout, 
canvasing NY state and northern PA for the Cincinnati Reds until 2019.

Ed loved the outdoors and was an avid walker. He enjoyed downhill skiing with his wife and 
daughters in the family’s early years, and later, cross country skiing and kayaking.
Visiting his daughters in ME and NM brought him much pleasure. With a particular resonance for 
stone, Ed built many a rock wall over the years and found great joy in creating and maintaining 
gardens, at his and Mini's residences.

Ed devoted much of his time in later years to writing, including poetry, and vignettes of his early 
years. In 2021 he self-published a fictional novel entitled The Last Season which outlines the 
thoughts and experiences of a professional baseball scout during the final year of his career. Ed 
leaves several drafts of other stories, both nonfiction and fiction.

Longtime resident of Binghamton, Ed also had a second home in Blue Hill, ME, near his youngest 
daughter and family, where he and Mini spent many extended vacations. Most recently they relocated 
to Albuquerque, NM to be near their eldest daughter and her family. Ed's passing was peaceful and 
he was surrounded by family with love. A private family service and cremation was held July 7ᵗʰ, in 
Albuquerque. A memorial service is being planned at a future date in Binghamton, NY, at the 
Nimmonsburg United Methodist Church, with burial to follow in Cochecton Center, NY.
