Edward J. Roman

d. August 14, 2023

Union

Edward was born in Brooklyn but his family moved to Queens where he lived for many years before
making his way to Union, New Jersey in order to spend more time with his four grandsons.
Edward was a proud graduate of Iona College where he majored in Facilities Management. He worked
for thirty years as a Verizon technician primarily serving the Westchester area and New York boroughs.
At home in New Jersey, Edward was an active participant at the senior center in Union as well as the
Fairway Civic Association.
Edward enjoyed reading and avidly devoured books on world history. He also enjoyed football and
every year initiated a fun family pool, but his greatest sports love was reserved exclusively for the Mets!
He welcomed any and all opportunities to talk about his beloved baseball team and his support was
unwavering.


Edward loved his country and served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam war.  He never grew tired of supporting those in active service, those who served, and the many organizations that provide continuous care for our veterans.
Edward was the first son of five siblings and leaves behind his sisters Regina and Irene, his brothers
Gregory and Philip along with his three nieces, Jeannie, Kathleen and Michele, three nephews, Joseph,
Patrick and Matthew and ten grand nieces and nephews.
Edward is survived by his loving wife of thirty-two years, Monica Roman, his two stepdaughters, Sandra
Denise and Olivia, his son John and four grandsons, Christian, Jordan, Luke and Noah. Of all his
accomplishments, Edward’s greatest role and the one that brought him the most pride and joy was
being a grandfather. He cheered boisterously for his grandsons on and off the field – “we will miss you
Bumpa and carry you in our hearts always”.

In lieu of flowers donations in his memory may be made to the Department of Disabled American Veterans
