"A Son, a brother, a nephew, a cousin, an uncle, a father, a friend"
Anthony Francis Edison Jr., passed away on October 11, 2013 at the Hope Hospice Center in Ft. Myers, FL. Originally, he was born in Plainfield NJ and raised in Piscataway NJ. He was a graduate of Piscataway High School where he ran track and played baseball. He then joined the Navy spending 6 years in communications. He was a gifted typist and that served him well during his time of service. He had a background in electronics and had a career in servicing copier equipment. He then moved to Florida to join his older brother Rocky and start a mirror design company. He then branched out on his own to start his own mirror design company and was successful in it. Anthony was an avid kayaker and went frequently with his younger brother Michael to paddle thru the beautiful bays and inlets in and around Sarasota, FL.
He was also a gifted vocalist and in growing up I remember his vocal group "The Wind" who used to rehearse in our parents driveway (Accapella Baby!)
