Obituary of Edward J Lawless

Edward J Lawless, 79, of Somers Point, NJ, formerly of Upper Darby, Pa, passed away peacefully at home on June.16th 2022.

Born in Philadelphia, PA, he was the son of Andrew F. and Dorothy (nee Robinson) Lawless. He is survived by his wife, BettyAnne (nee Wiseley) and his brothers, John (Barbara) and Richard (Paula). 

 

He graduated from Monsignor Bonner High School in 1960. He went on to become an engineer at Bell Telephone of Pennsylvania, where he retired after 40 years of service.

Ed and BettyAnne moved to Somers Point, NJ in 2004. He continued his handyman work as an independent contractor and had many faithful clients.

 

He loved the Philadelphia sports teams, especially the Phillies. You could always find him in front of the TV watching baseball or old western movies.

He was a loving and dedicated husband and was always a hard worker. Nothing could stop him until his terminal diagnosis. He had a special attachment to his little dog Lucy who was always by his side.

 

Ed will be dearly missed by his many loving family members and his supportive friends/neighbors, but mostly by his devoted wife of 44 years, Betty Anne.
