He met the love of his life at the age of 14. Growing up early Butch was a hard-working individual who adored his family. A quiet and private man by nature, his pleasant personality and insight were sought after by family and friends. The simplest pleasures brought him great joy. Edward worked in Commercial Refrigeration, Manufacturing and Quality Control in a Philadelphia-based company before retiring. He had the uncanny ability to find happiness in daily activities with Nancy by his side. He loved working in his vegetable garden and was especially proud of his tomato plants as well as other vegetables which he proudly gave to his family and loving neighbors. He never traveled far from home except to Penny Pack Park in his backyard where he enjoyed fishing with his neighborhood friends and family. His memory will be an inspiration especially to his grandchildren. He often said that being a grandfather completed his life. One of his greatest pleasures was spending time with his 7 grandchildren most of all. He often created silly games with something as simple as a piece of aluminum foil rolled into a ball or treasure hunts in the woods behind his home. The grandchildren would bring home their findings, many of which are still cherished to this day. Butch’s biggest accomplishment was his loving marriage and the love he and Nancy shared was evident in how he lived life. He was their “go to” for advice and honesty. He did not differentiate son-in laws or daughter in-laws. They were all his children and he loved them all equally; in turn, he was treated as their father - a true testament to his character and legacy. Butch will be greatly missed and in the hearts forever of his children, family, friends, neighbors and over 30 nieces and nephews.
