Ed Bornhauser
Born March 1, 1928
Died January 2, 2018

Ed Bornhauser was a happy man. He looked at life as a glass half full and he was happiest if his glass was half full of a vodka martini with three olives.

Ed answered to many names. Born on March 1, 1928, he was known as Edgar to his father John and his mother Edith. He was Edgar to his sisters Marie Emilie and Luetta.

During his career as a pharmacist and as a hospital representative for Eli Lilly, he was known as Eddy.

After his retirement to Williamsburg, VA, his name was shortened to Ed by the new friends he made and the many volunteer groups he worked with.

The name he was most proud to answer to was Dad when his sons Jeffrey and Todd came along.

Yet another name change occurred when his daughter-in-law Diane presented him with grandsons Nicholas and Mitchell and granddaughter Kate. He was delighted to add Grandpa Ed to his life collection of names.

Ed always told his beloved wife, Eve, of 61 years, “I don’t care what you call me just don’t call me late for dinner.” On January 2, 2018, Ed did not answer her dinner call. He left to see what the angels were serving.

In remembrance of Ed’s last dinner call, a wine and cheese reception will be held on January 20th in the Kildahl Park Pointe Commons Room located at 888 Cannon Valley Drive, Northfield, from 4:00-7:00pm.

Arrangements are with the Benson & Langehough Funeral Home. www.northfieldfuneral.com
