  • He Will Never Be Forgotten!

  • My uncle was a truly special and honorable man..He had a sensitivity and God given moral integrity that never diminished with age. He held fast to good old fashioned rock solid values and never strayed. God forbid I should offer to cover even so much as the tip when he took me an Moyna out to dinner! He got me started in the horse loving world which resulted in a very special bond between us. The foundation he gave me will continue to give me strength throughout the remainder of my life and beyond the grave… I loved and cherished my uncle more than words could ever express…Rest in blissful peace uncle Ted and we love you then, now and forever more.

  • My deepest condolences to the family. Eddie, you were such a positive and loving person with a great sense of humor. I will miss our meals at Mrs. Robino’s. I know you are with friends even now. Give mom a big hug for me! You and Moyna were her favorite people on the planet.

  • A great, kind man with a heart of gold. We share a beautiful little grandson who will miss you dearly Pop. Until we meet again God Speed!

  • I had the pleasure of enjoying his company in Punta Cana, deep sea fishing and sharing in celebration, as well as many social gatherings. I cannot think of a more sincere, kind and generous man, as attested by his legacy in his children. The world lost a great man.

  • Moyna, I want to let you know that it was a beautiful video! My husband’s services went very well this past Saturday.
    Joe suffered a lot these past few weeks and months. As much as I did not want to see him suffer, I did not want to
    let him go either. Truly a double edge sword! Please take care and I hope to see you again sometime. I wish you the
    best and to forge ahead as I am sure Ed would want you to do. Take care!
