Edward Alan Aleszczyk

(February 26, 1955-March 23, 2013)

“Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity and hardihood – the virtues that made America” -T. Roosevelt. These are the virtues that Ed embodied. Whether it was via lessons of dedication and ethics that he taught his children, selfless service to friends/family/co-workers, or random acts of kindness to our military: Ed was a man of exceptional character. A fearless and fervent fellow, his intelligent outspokenness and witty humor remained with everyone he met. Ed was a passionate patriot and analytical mind from cradle to grave.

Ed courted his sweetheart, Louise (nee Porrazza), in high school. Their courtship continued while he earned a B.S. from the University of Pennsylvania, where Ed attended on a full academic scholarship; a year later the two wed and began their happily ever after. Together, their lives have been blessed by their children: Edward (Laura) of Marmora, Chris (Tracy) of Delran and Michelle Mahan (James) of San Diego, and again by their grandchildren: Colbie and Chase. Ed is also survived by his brother, Robert (Carol) of PA, and his sister, Linda McDonnell (Mark) of PA.

    Mere words can never capture the spirit and essence of our friend and fellow patriot. Ed has been and will continue to be missed by all of us so lucky to have known him.

    Rest in peace dear friend. May your family take comfort in knowing your deeds and knowing how many were touched by your wit, generosity of spirit and caring. You were truly “one-of-a-kind.”

    The original Protest Warrior and agit-prop to the opposition. I will never forget this man. Standing with him was an honor and an education. He is with Andrew Briebart and Barbara Olson and they are all still here.

    “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” George S. Patton, Jr.

    I thank God that I knew such a wonderful man who will remain in my heart forever. I pray that his family will find peace and comfort knowing how many lives he touched his short years with us.

    My deepest condolences to the family. I knew Ed over 20 years ago at a company called M&T in Lakehurst Nj.
    We were colleges in same engineering group. He was the best engineer I ever worked with.

    Ed was a legend in his own time . I know he was welcomed into Heaven by the loving arms of our Troops who he fought so ferociously for. And now his robust spirit and intelligence will live on in eternity and already I know he is enlightening the heavens above! He made each of us better for knowing him. I will never forget you Ed.
