A Mass of Christian Burial was held on July 25 at Blessed Miriam Teresa Demjanovich Parish, at St. Andrew’s Church, for Edward William Rydwin, Jr. He passed away on July 17 at Naples Community Hospital in Naples, Florida. Edward was born October 2, 1948 in Jersey City, to the late Mary and Edward W. Rydwin, Sr. On June 25, 1978 Eddie married the love of his life Jeanette Bailey (who survives him). Eddie was a true Jersey boy. He was born, raised, and enjoyed his entire career in the state of New Jersey. He gained his love of boating and passion for fishing at a very early age, while he fished and boated with his Merchant Marine Dad. His boat, Danny Boy’s Bam Bam was the second love of his life. Eddie attended Jersey City State College where he earned his BS and MS degrees. He had a prodigious 30 year career teaching Chemistry and Physics at Lincoln High School in Jersey City. There he was loved and respected by his students. Although Eddie called Bayonne his home, he and Jeanette enjoyed winters on Marco Island, Florida and they spent much cherished time each summer aboard Danny Boy’s Bam Bam, at Belmar. Services arranged by the G. Keenen O’Brien Funeral Home, Bayonne.
