WATERBURY, Edward Francis born Aug. 7, 1930 in Jersey City, NJ, passed away May 25, 2014 from a long illness. After graduating in 1948, from St. Peter's Jesuit Prep School in Jersey City, Edward Waterbury worked at Exxon International in New York while attending night school at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey. His education was interrupted by two years of naval tanker duty that ended in 1953, at which time he married his only love, Joan Waterbury. After receiving a college business degree in 1958 from FDU, he went on to earn a M.A. from New York University in 1960. Upon returning to Exxon, Ed Waterbury helped market marine and aviation fuels and tanker loads of crude oil. His thesis on Soviet oil competition was accepted in 1960 by the Department of Government Area Studies at NYU, and lead to the Italian government oil agency (AGIP) creating a marketing position that he filled until 1964. He then joined Ebasco, a worldwide engineering firm with a mapping subsidiary. In 1971, he left this organization to become a senior vice president at a New York Stock Exchange brokerage firm, a position that he held until his retirement in 1995. Edward and Joan Waterbury enjoyed a retirement home in the foothills of Franklin, NC, where they were active members of St. Francis Catholic Church. Edward Waterbury is survived by his wife Joan; and seven children, Dawn Marie, Scott, Mark, Drew, David, Matthew and Damian; as well as 22 grandchildren.
