Edwin “Ed” L. Roche Jr.
Branchburg, NJ

Edwin “Ed” L. Roche Jr. passed away on Sunday, October 20, 2019 at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital New Brunswick. Born in Somerville, NJ he was a resident of Manville for most of his life before moving to Branchburg 22 years ago.

Ed was a graduate of Manville High School Class of 1987, and a college graduate of Mercer County College.

Ed owned and operated Creative Craftsmen LLC where he remodeled and designed his own kitchens, bathrooms, decks, etc. He was very well known in the area for his talented work.
Ed was a board member for the Branchburg Baseball Club and served on the Parks and Recreation Committee in Branchburg. He also coached all his children’s baseball games and served as Umpire Chief for Branchburg.

Ed was an avid bowler, Jets, Yankees, and Rangers fan. He loved golfing, fishing, hunting, and taking family trips, especially to Maine and the Jersey Shore. He adored his dog Scooby-Do, and his cat El Gato, but his greatest joy in life was spending quality time with his family, especially his children. One of his best qualities was his big heart and great sense of humor.
He always knew how to make everyone laugh and smile with his jokes. He will be missed tremendously by all who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents and his beloved father, Edwin L. Roche Sr. (2006).
