Edward Schwindt, Jr.

Died: Friday, June 02, 2006
Age: 83
Edward Schwindt, Jr. of Southold died at Eastern Long Island Hospital last Friday.

Mr. Schwindt was born to Edward and Elizabeth (nee Sing) Schwindt on March 17, 1923 in Brooklyn, New York. After serving in the United States Navy, he enjoyed a long career with the New York Fire Department.

Formerly of Albertson, L.I., he began summering in Southold in 1954, and moved there permanently 30 years ago. He was a communicant of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Greenport and served as president of the congregational council. He was involved in collecting flip-tops from beverage containers so that children suffering from renal failure could enjoy a two-week vacation trip and in collecting cancelled stamps for a children’s home in Norway. In his free time, he enjoyed sailing and playing tennis.

Mr. Schwindt is survived by his wife of 61 years, Muriel (nee Kunz); his children, Pamela (and her husband Robert) Haldas of Southold and Donna (and her husband Thomas) Roche of South Huntington, and a brother, Kenneth of Medford, L.I. He was the beloved “poppa” to Dr. Jason Haldas, Dawn Rohrs, Mathew Roche, and Courtney Roche and seven great-grandchildren.

Friends were welcomed at the DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Homes in Southold on Saturday and Sunday. Religious services were held on Monday at Peter’s Lutheran Church by Rev. Garret Johnson. Interment, with military honors, was in the Cutchogue Cemetery.

Memorial donations can be made to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, 1111 Stewart Avenue, Bethpage, New York 11714 or to St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 242, Greenport, New York 11944.
