ForeverMissed
It is with great sorrow that the family of Gregg Alan Edelman announces his sudden passing on March 25th 2020, at the age of 54 in his Virginia home. Born in New Jersey, to Dolores and the late Marvin Edelman, on April 28th 1965. He grew up in the Merchantville area where he attended and graduated from Pennsauken High School, during which time he began his boxing career as “The Zion Lion.” Though it was somewhat short lived, he made many life long friends and loved following in his father’s footsteps. In his later years, he resided in Ventnor, where he developed his love for golf— he played every chance he could. He also worked as a bartender there for much of his life and always bragged about his skills up until his passing. Gregg later became a card dealer and began working in casinos, Parx Philadelphia and MGM National Harbor, which he enjoyed very much. He was such a people person and loved interacting with people. His smile and laugh were contagious— he would light up any room that he walked into. Anyone who knew Gregg knew that making fun of you was his favorite way to show he cared. He had a heart unlike any other. He loved fiercely, but there was no love greater than the love he had for his daughter, Haley. She was the absolute light of his life. He is also survived by his mother, siblings [Ronald (Julia), Lori (Danny), Scott (Merle), and Gale] and nieces and nephews [Rachael, Rebekah, Lauren (Nick), Jessica (Aaron), Alex, Lisa (Michael), Aidan, Solomon, and Dylan]. Funeral services will be private due to the pandemic, but a memorial will be held at a later date to celebrate Gregg’s life.

I am so very sorry for your family’s loss. Gregg and I became very close during our PDA days in the mid 80’s and reconnected several years ago. He was like a brother I always wished I had. May he Rest In Peace
