Ed Demesa Funeral Fund

Ed Demesa was more than a cliche of quotes-- he was an outstanding son, brother, and friend. He was taken from us too soon, on October 11, 2017 . Words cannot properly articulate who he was as a person. Ed left behind two sisters and his mother. 

He was a quiet and caring person. His generous and nurturing personality showed in the way he lived his life. Without reason or notification he would show up  at your front door just to check up on you.  While he was not a loud or extroverted person, his calm presence was able to quell the fiercest storms. A veterinary technician by trade, Ed loved animals as well. He often came home  with loving photos of the very animals who bit and scratched their way to his heart.  Ed was someone who we loved just as much as he loved all forms of life.

Ed passed due to illness. Though we may not understand why at the moment, whether or not we agree with the time of his passing, we as his family must live with this forever.

His untimely passing has given us expenses we can not currently fulfill. We are respectfully asking for help in covering these expenses.  Below is a breakdown of what the funds would be going toward:

Funeral Home Services: $2170
Facilities & Staff: $890
Transportation: $920
Casket: $1100
Crematory: $170
Church: $500
Death Certificates: $150
Permits & Filing Fees: $100
Mausoleum Expenses: $3500

If you are able to attend, the Wake will be held on Monday, October 16th--9:00am at Boulevard Funeral Home located at 1151 River Rd, New Milford, NJ 07646

The Mass will be held on the same day at 12:30 P.M.  at St. Johns Evangelist Church located at 29 N Washington Ave. Bergenfield, NJ 07621.
 
For all those involved in this proccess, we greatly appreciate your support and/or contributions.
