Eddie was born in White Plains, NY on May 6, 1954 and was raised in Short Hills with his brother and five sisters. He was a graduate of Millburn High School and went on to earn his bachelor’s degree from St. Leo University in Florida.
After graduating college Eddie began his lifelong career in finance, practicing at several banks including Merrill Lynch and most recently UBS Wealth Management in Florham Park. Eddie was well-respected and deeply devoted to his work. He had a gracious way of impacting so many around him, as evidenced by the many trusted relationships he forged with his clients over the years.
Eddie was married to his beloved wife Grace at Christ the King Church in 1999 and the couple settled in Madison, where they raised their family and were active in the community. Eddie had a tremendous faith and was a parishioner of St. Vincent Martyr Church.
Eddie was a vibrant man who loved life. He was sociable, strong-willed and was always willing to help others in need. Eddie was a wonderful father, husband, brother and friend.
