Edwin W. Angermeier Jr. passed away peacefully at home on March 27th, 2022, with his loving family by his side. Born in Jersey City, he moved to Bayonne where he raised his family before relocating to Pennsylvania and then Toms River, NJ.
Eddie served his country proudly in the United States Marine Corps Reconnaissance Battalion where he received the rank of Lance Corporal. After completing his military service, he met his loving wife, Rita, with whom he shared a 53-year marriage before her passing in 2013. He was a hard-working family man, retiring from Port Jersey Distribution Services in 1993.
He had a great sense of humor, making witty comments that made everybody laugh, although his wife Rita sometimes had to roll her eyes. A true nature lover, he enjoyed being outside, always involving his family in his many activities, whether hiking through Red Rock Country in Sedona, AZ with his son Eddie, or simply relaxing in his backyard with his loved ones.
Though sometimes perceived as a tough Marine, Eddie was really a gentle man whose greatest pleasure in life was being surrounded by his children and grandchildren. He will be missed beyond measure, but his wonderful legacy will remain in the hearts of the countless lives he touched.
Predeceased by his dearly beloved wife, Rita (nee: Britten); his daughter, Robyn Farrell; granddaughter, Alexandra Farrell; two sons-in-law, James Caposello and Daniel Patella; his mother, Helen, whom he adored; his brothers, Dennis and Donald; and amongst many cousins, Stevie Moser, whom he loved like a brother and served with in the USMC.
Left to cherish his memory are his daughters, Rita Angermeier, Kerry Caposello, and Jill Patella; sons, Edwin III and James Angermeier; sons-in-law, Greg Farrell and Robert Nadrowski; grandchildren, Tara, Lauren, and Brianna Nadrowski, James Jr. and Jason Caposello, Jaclyn Nuanez, Danielle Porter, and Daniel Patella, Gregory Farrell, Alex and Jared Angermeier; his eight great-grandchildren; his sister, Carol Porch; and sister-in-law, Carol Brennan. He also leaves behind many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins.
A memorial mass with military honors will be held at St. Andrew’s Church, 125 Broadway, Bayonne on Tuesday, April 12, at 11:00 AM, followed by burial of his ashes at the Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veteran Memorial Cemetery, Wrightstown, NJ.
I am the Light of the World,
he who follows Me will not
walk in darkness but will
have the light of life.
