|Edward Mazzella Jr
Date of Birth: March 26, 1939
Department: Equity Sales
Position: Senior Vice President
Ed Mazzella was sixty-two and lived in Monroe for the past thirty years. He was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. We were married for forty years this past February 11th. He was my life and now all I have left are the memories. I have an ache in my heart that will never go away. We have two wonderful children and four beautiful grandchildren. He adored them all and would do anything for his family and his friends. Ed worked on Wall Street for forty years. Clients became his lifelong friends. He truly enjoyed going to work each day but was looking forward to retiring on September 14th.

Other than his family his two great passions were golf and watercolor painting. His golf game improved this past year and on September 2nd, he won his flight in the club championship on the first playoff hole. His paintings were enjoyed by all who viewed them and many are proudly displayed in the homes of family and friends. Perhaps his greatest talent was the ability to share a conversation. In the days following September 11th, our family received many cards and letters from people expressing their sympathy and relating how he left a lasting impression on them. The most memorable of these are from people he met briefly, the man who installed his satellite dish or the young girl from the catering company who helped serve Christmas dinner at our home.
A day doesn’t go by that we don’t think of him. We have a void in our hearts that is immeasurable. He was the core of our family. We still gather for holidays and family occasions but an emptiness remains among us. In the days ahead we have many hills to climb but we know his guidance will always be with us showing us the way.
