Edward "Ed" Werner Obituary
DUBLIN, Ireland - Edward "Ed" Werner, 67, passed away in his home in Dublin, Ireland, on June 3, 2012. Ed was born in Newark, N.J., on June 11, 1944.

He graduated from Morris Hills High School and then married his high school sweetheart, Marilyn Anderson of Wharton, N.J., in 1964. They had two daughters, Christine and Katie. Marilyn passed away in September of 2008.

He started work at Western Electric in 1963. Besides having a full-time job and family, he decided to also open up Tiffany's Bakery in the Rockaway Mall and a few years later opened the Old New York Deli and Bakery in Rockaway. In 1985, Ed moved his family abroad from New Jersey to London, England, with AT&T International. From there, Ed began building a division in Network Cable Systems that would grow to a billion dollar business. While working with AT&T/Lucent, he also had the opportunity to live and work in Germany, Belgium and Ireland. He retired in 2004, after more than 40 years with Lucent. He resided both in Ireland and Florida. Ever the energetic man he continued to consult and traveled the world.

Besides being an amazing father and loving grandfather and husband, he was considered a fantastic leader in business and was widely respected in his industry. He established many long and solid relationships in business that resulted in enduring friendships.

Ed was a self-made man who worked incredibly hard with a relentless energy to build something for himself, his family and his friends. He had a passion for everything he did and was fiercely loyal to his friends and family.

He is survived by his two daughters, Christine Werner Catullo and Katie Werner Dudney; grandchildren, Jordan and Jase Catullo and Harley Dudney, sons-in- law, Jeff Catullo and Larry Dudney; his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Joyce and Mike DellaVecchia; his partner, Lorna McDermott; and his brother, Jim Werner; and sisters, Ellen Werner and Maureen Sharrow and their families.

Ed may have had the opportunity to travel the world but he was always a Jersey boy at heart. He loved and took pride in his Jersey roots.

He is truly missed beyond words but the life lessons he shared are part of the legacy he left with his friends and family.

His family requests any gestures to be made to the Sparta Elks Lodge where the donations will go to support children in sports and education programs: http://www.spartaelks.org/donate.html.
