Westwood - Edward C. Heinz, 77, of Westwood, left this Earth to be with the Lord on Saturday, September 1, 2018, while vacationing on "One Happy Island", Aruba.

Edward, known to many as "Big Ed", was in Aruba for the 20th consecutive year with the love of his life and wife of 55 years, Betty Jane. He leaves behind his three children, Kenneth Heinz (Kerrie), Andrea Dawson (George), and Gary Heinz (Ashley), and his two beloved grandchildren, Alyssa and Kara Dawson, as well as countless family and friends from across the country.

Edward was born on June 6, 1941 in Bronx, New York and devoted his life to the Lutheran ministry from 1963 to 1994. He then went on to work for Smart Tuition in New York City. His unequivocal love for his Lord, his family, his friends, the game of Scrabble, and the New York Jets defined him, and he was a beloved member of the Westwood community, having moved here in 1978. He will be remembered for his countless acts of kindness towards loved ones and strangers alike, his devotion to his grandchildren and their professional and athletic careers, having missed very few games over the past 20 years, and his sense of humor, which captivated anyone who was blessed to be in his presence.

The family will receive visitors on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at Zion Lutheran Church, 155 Second Avenue in Westwood at 2:30pm, followed by a Memorial Service at 4:00pm. Edward's wish was to have a Celebration of Life, which will take place immediately following the Memorial Service. His cremated remains will be interred in Zion Lutheran Church's columbarium at Westwood Cemetery. Donations in memory of Edward may be made to the Sgt. Christopher Hrbek Scholarship Fund (Lakeland Bank, 21 Jefferson Avenue, Westwood, New Jersey 07675) or to Phil's Friends (1350 Lake Street Ste 1, Roselle, Illinois 60172).
