Ed was a proud Korean War Vet, Army 169th Infantry, Germany. He graduated from Holy Redeemer School and attended John Marshall High School. He was the youngest manager at Harts (original) grocery store. He also worked at Fasco and Kodak. Ed enjoyed being chauffer for the elderly for many years and he was always ready for a road trip and adventure with his family. He was fortunate to travel to many states and to see many wonders of our country, especially in New Mexico. Ed was a NY Yankees fan and enjoyed all types of music, especially classical, country western, the bagpipes and Lawrence Welk.
Go now, Ed, the time has come. All worldly tasks are done. There are others waiting for you, and songs yet to be sung.
Private interment at Holy Sepulchre cemetery.
