Edward was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, he graduated Nazareth Regional High School Brooklyn, NY, in 1982. He graduated De Vry Institute in 1984. Upon graduation of De Vry Eddie started working for Telerate in 1984. Then he moved on to Cantor Fitzgerald in 1986, where he was a dedicated employee for 15 years.
In 1993, Eddie married Joanne and later built the home of their dreams and moved to New Jersey. His daughter, Stephanie, was born in 1995 and his son, Edward IV, was born in 1997.
There are no words that can truly express all the love I have for Eddie. Eddie was a wonderful husband and daddy, you could not find a more prouder man. He was dedicated to his family and friends. As a wife, I could not have dreamed or wished for a more perfect man. Eddie was a dream come true. Incredibly loving, caring, romantic, amazing, and very humorous, always putting love and laughter in my heart and a smile on my face. I am extremely proud to be his wife.
Everyday when Eddie was home was like an adventure. In the fall, Eddie would take Stephanie, Little Eddie and I, on nature walks through the woods. Eddie would show us how to find deer tracks by moving the leaves away to see the deer prints in the dirt. Oh’ how Eddie loved to fish. Eddie always said he could not marry someone who did not like to fish. Eddie was so proud when Stephanie started to cast her own pole. He would often say, “the best times in life are with family and friends.” Eddie also loved to cook and loved to teach Stephanie and Little Eddie how to make their own pizza. We would go out to feed the deer, horses, play T-ball, soccer, football, hopscotch and rough house together. There were many times that I would cry when I watched Eddie play with Stephanie and Little Eddie. Eddie would say to the kids look mommy’s crying again. I would tell Eddie how much I love him and how incredibly lucky I was to have him as a husband. Then Eddie would go pick up the telephone and pretend to call the doctor just to put that smile back on my face. I would never have to tell him to play with Stephanie and Little Eddie because he was a dedicated Daddy. Every night Eddie came home it was family night, most Saturday’s and every Sunday were family days.
Eddie was well known and liked throughout the world. Everyone that knew him had more than one hilarious story to tell. Oh’ how he could make people laugh, sometimes he could put smiles on the faces of others that overheard him. Eddie had his own unique way of telling the funniest jokes and stories and simply would not rest until he put that smile on your face, and he always succeeded. I will always remember the little jokes he told Stephanie and Little Eddie, because they are just like him, always telling jokes they learned from their Daddy.
Eddie was very magical with the kids, not only his own, but with others. At Christmas time, Eddie would occasionally dress as Santa Claus for our development and for Cantor, he truly enjoyed making the kids happy. Eddie was a big kid himself. In our hearts, everyday was Christmas just by his presence.
Eddie was a dedicated husband and Daddy. All the love and laughter Eddie gave to me in fifteen years, Stephanie in six years and Little Eddie in four years, most people don’t have in a lifetime. We were truly lucky.
Eddie will be greatly missed but will live forever in our hearts.
Your loving wife Joanne, Your beautiful children Stephanie & Edward
