Ed lived between New York and Florida throughout his life. He had many great friends up and down the East-Coast., too many to mention. He was especially close with the Mulcahy, Gadonniex, and Ronda Families'. Ed had been a car salesman for many years. He had an entrepreneurial spirit, he owed many businesses over his lifetime, including a car dealership, a flower shop, and several hotdog trucks. Ed loved the ocean and sitting with his feet in the water, especially at 4:20 in the afternoon. He will forever be remembered with his larger than life personality and stories that will continue to make us laugh for years to come.
His family is having a Celebration of Life to honor him on Sept 8th at 2pm in Hasbrook Park's Stone building. Delaware Ave in Kingston, New York 12401. Please RSVP on his Facebook page or via text a message to his phone number.
