Former Cumberland Mayor Edward C. Athey passed away Tuesday afternoon at the Western Maryland Health Regional Medical Center following a year long battle with leukemia. Toward the end of a long career at the Kelly Springfield Company, Athey entered politcs and served as the city's mayor from 1992 to 2000, before opting not to seek another term. Since leaving office, and in declining health, Athey kept a relatively low profile in the past decade but is remembered by most as a dedicated family man and public servant. The Scarpelli Funeral Home on Virginia Avenue is in charge of arrangements. Services will be private. Ed Athey was 78
