Obituary of Edward Nelson Demarest, Sr

Edward Nelson Demarest, Sr., age 71, of Hope, New Jersey, passed away suddenly at his home on September 28, 2021. Edward is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Susan (Slobodzinski) Demarest and 5 children- Michelle (Demarest) Walters and significant other Kevin Brennan, Heather (Demarest) Bernardi and husband Michael, Edward N. Demarest, Jr. and wife Vickie, Andrew Demarest and wife Holly and Aaron Demarest. 10 grandchildren: Tessa, Jacob, Colin, Ian, Abe, Zane, Ariana, Laila, Landon, Alyssa. 3 great-grandchildren: Dayton, Jace, Knox. And son-in-law Eric Walters. Edward was an affable character known to many for his sense of humor and laid-back demeanor. He took great pride in his job as a paraprofessional at Belvidere High School where he enjoyed working with students and staff in a variety of ways from academics to sports. Edward created a lifetime of memories with his family. From family vacations to Florida to scratch off lottery tickets at holiday dinners. From Sci-fi shows to Marvel movies. From pumpkin patches to homemade projects. But most importantly, he enjoyed quiet mornings on the deck drinking coffee with his wife while they looked upon the beautiful gardens they created together. There will be a viewing on Sunday, October 3, 2021 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Newbaker Funeral Home, 200 Rt. 94, Blairstown, NJ 07825 followed by a Memorial Service immediately at 3:00 pm.
