Obituary for Edwin Eugene "Ebbie" Eggleston, Jr.

Edwin Eugene Eggleston, Jr. was born on January 6, 1956 in Elizabeth, New Jersey. The son of the late Edwin E. Eggleston Sr. and Esther Eggleston (Harriett). Affectionately referred to as Ebbie or Ebbie Jr. by friends and family, he graduated from Cranford High School in 1974.

Ebbie enjoyed venturing out into different mediums.  Various high school teams; Football and Wrestling, Adult Recreation Softball and Basketball Teams. Enjoyed a good game of Tennis, Bowling, Pool, Pac Man, Poker or Spades. He enjoyed music, and would be the first to say, "I love and appreciate all music".  He's been known to strum a guitar, beat on a set of drums. He marched in the The Cranford Patriots Drum and Bugle Corp and The Falcons of Elizabeth.  He enjoyed a healthy dose of adventure and trying new things. He also enjoyed good clean competition.

Ebbie resided in Delaware since 2006 with his long term partner of 16 years, Susan Ferrette. While in Delaware, Ebbie was employed in the Agricultural sector, retiring from Mountaire Farms, Millsboro, DE in March, 2018. 

Ebbie enjoyed a good game, good food, good music and an all around good time. He loved two things equally and above all else; family and The Green Bay Packers. Ebbie believed in being "Home for the Holidays" with family, the more the merrier, and he loved coming back home to that little town of Cranford, NJ  Ebbie enjoyed being the first to wish you a Happy Birthday, Happy, Merry Christmas or Happy New Year. He was always around to help when needed, tell him when and where. And his beloved Packers, win or lose there was no better team. Packers until I die he's been known to say.

Ebbie passed away, peacefully at home in Millsboro, DE on Wednesday, September 5, 2018. Ebbie's sense of humor, friendship, optimism will be missed by friends and family.

He is survived by his Mother, Esther Eggleston of Cranford and predeceased by his father Edwin Sr.  A long term partner, Susan Ferrette, Millsboro, DE, two brothers Chuckie of Newark and Ty of Cranford.  Two sisters, Sheree Mitchell (Willie) of Hackensack, and Nikki Eggleston (Tim) of Cranford.  Four Nephews; Wm. Scott, Julius and Marc Mitchell (Garfield/Hackensack) and Nic Downey of Cranford. Three Grand-nieces; Tatiana, Jasmine and Mya Mitchell and two Grand-nephews; Jared Richards Bramble and Nathan Downey, and a host of other family and friends.

As Ebbie would say at the end of every phone call, "I Got Nothing but Love for ya."
