Edward "Eddie" Bowers, 73, of Hazlet, passed away peacefully on December 21, 2023, in Holmdel. Born and raised in Manhattan, New York, he lived in various areas of New Jersey, prior to moving to Hazlet in 1980.
Eddie was predeceased by his loving parents, Edward Bowers and Mary White, his stepmother, Ann Bowers, his sister, Caroline Jollimore, and his grandson, "Little" Denny Bowers. His legacy will be carried on by his best friend and soul mate, Betty Bowers of Hazlet; his daughters, Carol D'Annunzio of Keansburg and Stacey Baumann of Hazlet; his son, Denny Bowers of New York; his brother, Jimmy Bowers of Whiting; and his seven grandchildren, Emma, Isabella, Andrew, Sadie, Makayla, Mackenzie, and Noah. Eddie's warm spirit will also be remembered by his numerous nieces, nephews, and a community of friends who were touched by his kindness.
Eddie proudly served his country as a first cook and supervisor in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. His dedication to his fellow veterans continued long after his service, as he was an active member of the VFW Post #4303 in Hazlet. Eddie's work ethic was further exemplified in his career as a retired UPS driver, where he was known for his reliability and friendly nature.
Beyond his professional life, Eddie had a passion for horse racing and playing the lottery. An avid sports fan, he loyally supported the Jets and the Mets. He took joy in helping others. He had a huge heart and would do anything for anyone, often going out of his way to assist friends, family, or even strangers in need.
Edward Bowers lived a life that exemplified service, love, and commitment. His passing leaves a void that cannot be filled, but his spirit will continue to inspire those who were fortunate enough to know him. As we say goodbye to Eddie, we hold onto the memories, the lessons, and the love he shared with us all. His story does not end here; it lives on through the lives of his family and friends, who will continue to honor his legacy by embodying the values he held dear.
Family and friends are invited to pay their respects on Wednesday from 4 pm-6 pm at the Jacqueline M. Ryan Home for Funerals 233 Carr Ave. Keansburg. Cremation will be private.
