MONROE TOWNSHIP - EDWARD FRANCIS TODD JR., passed away on Wednesday, May 20, 2020, at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, New Brunswick. He was 64 years old.
Born in New York, he resided in Jackson Heights, North Bergen, Old Bridge, Spotswood and East Brunswick before relocating to Monroe Township 5 years ago.
He was a parishioner of St. Bartholomew R.C. Church, East Brunswick, a member of the Gunnery Sergeant James Paige #1127 Marine Corps League, Memorial Post #133, VFW, the St. Bartholomew R.C. Church Boy Scouts, and the St. Bartholomew Council #11873, Knights of Columbus, all of East Brunswick.
Edward received his Bachelors from the College of Insurance and his Masters from Seton Hall University. He worked as an insurance executive for 48 years for several businesses including Aon, Marsh, Frenkel, Ernst & Young, Blades & McCauley, Atlantic Mutual, Continental and Hartford.
He was predeceased by his parents, Edward Francis Todd Sr., and Alberta Dorothea Meyer Todd.
Surviving are his wife of 42 years, Catherine (Mangino); their children, Edward Michael and his wife, Jessica Celeste, of East Brunswick, and Kristen Ann Todd-Matos and her husband, Michael Rebelo Matos of Monroe Township; his sister-in-law, Ann Marie O'Leary and her friend, Ron Lariviere of Monroe Township/Florida; nephew, Peter Rossi and his wife, Shannon, and their son, Anthony of Chester, and the joys of his life - his two beautiful grandchildren, Eddie and Vivi.
Ed will be fondly remembered as a family man whose love extended to everyone he met. Greeting everyone in the same manner with a large smile, firm handshake and a booming "outstanding," his positivity and kindness instantly brightened any room.
The family requests that as a way to honor Ed you cherish the moments with your family, reach out to a long lost friend, hug your family that much tighter and live every moment to the fullest. Ed would want us all to continue to live in a way so our lives are outstanding.

What a kind and gentle man! We have very fond memories of him as my son's Boy Scout Packmaster. Our deepest condolences to Cathy and the family! Our prayers are with all of you! Sincerely, Nancy Sedlak , Dan and Dave Schuberth, and Kathryn and Lauren Bartram
Ed was a wonderful man who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. May happy memories bring solace to his loved ones during this sorrowful time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
My wife and I are saddened to have learned of Ed’s passing. I was privileged to have known Ed and to have partnered with him in serving the Boy Scout troop and Cub Scout Pack St. Bart’s. It’s been years since Ed and I have crossed paths and shared a laugh but I never forget the friendship we had and Ed’s devotion to his family.
Ed will remain in our hearts and prayers.

Papa Todd, even though our time was short; it was absolutely memorable beyond belief. You were an amazing, selfless, loving, kind, sweet, happy person but most importantly a Family Man. You were a true example to us, and you will be missed tremendously. We know it’s not goodbye, but until we meet again.. Thank You for being such an amazing person and impacting our lives the way you did.
We will forever Love You.

I’m so sorry to hear of Ed’s passing. Although we were work colleagues, we had many fun times - from the poker tables in Atlantic City and Las Vegas to the lowliest dive bars and swankiest restaurants in NYC Ed always made sure that we drank a shot or two,or three to the Marine Corps.
Rest In Peace my friend..
