Edward H. Schlaupitz, 73, of Ponce Inlet passed away on Friday February 19th 2016. He was born November 29th, 1942 to Edward and Eva Schlaupitz in Elizabeth, New Jersey. He lived in Roselle Park, NJ and attended school there. He graduated from Roselle Park High School. He then enrolled in Newark State College where he received a Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in education. He worked for the Singer Company in Elizabeth where he was a Production Control Supervisor. Subsequently, he worked for Lockheed Electronics in Plainfield, NJ where he supervised production of various military electronic hardware systems for the Department of Defense. After living in Matawan, Jackson, and Point Pleasant Beach, he moved to Florida in 1984 where he became a motel operator of the Algiers and later the Sunshine Beach Motel in Daytona Beach. He resided in Wilbur by the Sea at the time. After leaving the motel business, he went on to operate the Docksider Restaurant on the river in Ponce Inlet. He lived in Ponce Inlet for 18 years where he enjoyed the beach and fishing. He lived the last five years at Harbour Village where a wonderful, friendly atmosphere promoted camaraderie and close relationships. Ed is survived by his wife of 52 years, Marian, and two sons, Brian of Daytona Beach Shores and Craig of Wilbur by the Sea.

He is also survived by sister-in-law Pat Wirth, her husband Bill, daughter Bridgit and her daughter Haley, brother-in- law Kevin Conochan, his wife Debra and their daughters Jillian and Kelaine. He will be missed by his family and friends who knew him as a generous, caring and loving husband, father and friend.

    Dear Marion, I am sad to hear that Ed has passed. If it had not been for you two taking a chance on this Brit I would not have been here in Florida. I had the best times working with you and the parties afterwards and all the wonderful people I met at Docksider. Sending much love to you at this difficult time.

    Hello Marian and family. We met a great friend when we met you and Ed at the Steak House. He was always fun to talk to, always joking, even during all his health issues. We will miss him. Our thoughts are with you and your family. Dave & Diana

    So sorry for your loss Marian and family. "Grumpy Ed and Maid Marian", our nicknames for the two of you. Without them, Bob wouldn't remember your names, haha. For Ed the nickname couldn't be further from the truth. His face would light up and he would have a huge smile on his face when we saw him. Bob and Ed would bust each other up all the time, thoroughly enjoying every moment. I loved my conversations with Ed about your many travels. He was always so helpful and eager to share traveling tips. So glad you have all those memories to look back upon. He will be sadly missed but I know he is in a better place now and is probably visiting all the places he loved so much. God bless all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Bob and Laura Pesare

    We will dearly miss Ed "the mayor". He was a wonderfully compassionate and all around great guy. Gone but never forgotten.

    We will miss Ed's smile and always great outlook on life.
    He was too young to leave us.
    Our prayers go out to his family!
