MAZUR - Edward Michael, beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, drew his last breath on December 9, 2020 mainly, we suspect, to avoid having to watch another Jets game. Eddie was born January 3, 1935 in Brooklyn, N.Y. After growing up in rough and tumble Williamsburg, he married his sweetheart, Kathy Pullen, in 1959. Little did she know that Eddie would sweep her off to Alaska in his swanky VW Bug to finish his tour in the U.S. Army, returning in 1960 to give birth to their first born, Kevin, in 1961 followed by Kerri Ann and Maureen. The escapades of that VW Bug made many more memories for his family and friends throughout the '60's. Eddie was handsome (some would even say cool), and always had an inner drive for adventure. From his cross-continent VW trip, to skiing throughout the US, to his beloved boating adventures in the Great South Bay, Eddie knew how to enjoy himself and make everyone feel welcome. Needless to say, Eddie could party with the best of them, and he was certainly not shy when it came to expressing his opinion. But most of his opinions could not be printed here.He loved baseball and was an avid softball player for many years, as well as a member of the Knights of Columbus. We would be remiss if we didn't mention his dancing skills, Eddie and Kathy were frequently the couple to watch on the dance floor. While he may not have been virtuous, Eddie had a good moral compass and was loved by his family and friends. Despite his well earned reputation for being the life of the party, you could always count on Eddie to be there for you. When anyone thinks of Eddie, we immediately experience a rush of good memories, and that says it all. There was never a dull moment with Eddie, he either made you laugh or shake your head. Eddie leaves behind a loving family, his wife, Kathy, his children Kevin, Kerri Ann and Maureen, their spouses as well as six grandchildren and scores of nieces, nephews and friends who loved him dearly. The family requests that any donations be made to the Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center located at 1025 Old Country Road, #115, Westbury, NY, 11590 (516) 767-6856.
