Edward G. Hoeger

AGE: 52 • Cherry Hill

EDWARD G. HOEGER (52), our son, brother, father, and friend, died on June 6, 2014. Eddy was a lovable, irresistible rascal whose infectious smile, unmistakable laugh, quick wit, and unshakable loyalty defined him. His absence leaves us bereft. He is survived by his mother, Penny Postel; his sister, Ellyce Hoeger (Richard Gillis); sons, Edward P. and Myles D. Hoeger; members of the Walsky, Postel, and Hoeger families; special lady, Renae Previdi; and scores of friends. He remained stoic and positive, charming and entertaining during his final bout with esophageal cancer which ended in his childhood home in the loving hands of his dearest mother, sister, and faithful, best friend, Catherine Binowski. It was an honor to care for him. His bravery was amazing. He encountered death stoically and gracefully. While still a teen, Eddy left Cherry Hill, married, entered fatherhood, and moved to Alaska where construction work took him as far as the Aleutians, honed his natural talents, and eventually led him to his passion - aviation. Eddy's career in aviation spanned almost 20 years, beginning as an Alaskan bush pilot and eventually owning and operating Atlantic Aviation Services in Lumberton, N.J. He was proud of his family, his friends, his accomplishments, and his students. Eddy was at ease with princes, pirates, saints, and scoundrels. He was a raconteur, a teller of tales, both tall and true. His brief life was filled with love, laughter, adventure, and plans. The prime spot anywhere was near Eddy. He was a font of startling, delightful observations and factoids. He sparkled. May he rest in peace among the stars. Relatives and friends are invited to greet the family on Tuesday from 6:00 - 8:00 PM and on Wednesday from 11:00 - 12:00 noon at the BRADLEY & STOW FUNERAL HOME, 127 Medford-Mt. Holly Rd., Medford, NJ, where a Funeral Service will be held on Wednesday at 12:00 Noon. Interment will follow in the Colestown Cemetery in Cherry Hill, NJ. Shiva will be observed on Thursday and Friday evenings from 6 to 8 at his Cherry Hill home.
