He was proud to be a lifetime member of the Holmdel Volunteer Fire Company #1 and a part-time Special Patrolman with the Holmdel Police Department. Dad was also a longtime friend of Bill W.

Dad was a kind and generous man with a big heart. His greatest joy was his family and he let us know how much he loved us every day. He will be deeply missed and live in our hearts always.

I remembered Ed's name from working at J.C.P.&L. FROM 1954 THRU 1994. We were never close friends since I always worked in the clerical field, but I remember him as a great guy when our paths crossed.
