Edward J. Hullings, passed away, peacefully at home, surrounded by the love of his family. He was a long time resident of Southampton, New Jersey, born in Riverside, New Jersey, where he attended St. Peter’s Elementary school and Riverside High School. He joined the Marine Corp. in 1965 where he served as a machine gunner in Vietnam. While there he was severely wounded, and received the Purple Heart. He worked for the carpenters local #1823, for 30 years until retiring early at age 55. He was a member of the Tribe M. C. and also the Aces and Eights M. C., where he enjoyed, riding his Harley, and got the name “Highway.” Ed also was a member of the Disabled American Veterans, American Legion Post # 294, The NRA, The Hamilton Rod and Gun Club and the Franklin Parker Preserve.
He enjoyed many things such as fishing, hunting, camping, and traveling in his R. V. Most of all, he loved vacations at the shore, and the mountains with his family. He spent many hours in his garage, enjoying great conversations, storytelling, and of course, a cold Miller Lite. During his final years, he battled several severe illnesses, and the injuries he suffered at war. No matter how bad he felt, he always had a smile and stood strong. He showed courage, strength, and love. He was always there for his family and friends. Ed was a loving husband, father, Pop-Pop, brother, uncle, and a good friend to all. He would want to be remembered with smiles, laughter, and happy memories. Ed was truly one of a kind. This is not a time of sorrow, but rather a time of celebration of a life well lived.
