Edward Boucher, loving Husband, father, grandfather passed away on Thursday, November 18, 2021 at age 88. Born in 1933 in Simpson PA, to Edward and Vina Boucher, he moved with his family to Newark, then resided in Hillside where he spent most of his youth prior to joining the Navy in 1951. He married the love of his life, Carol, and settled down in Kenilworth where they raised their family. He is predeceased by his wife, Carol, who passed in 2009 married for 48 years, his 2 brothers Bobby and Charlie Boucher, and his grandson Erik Echevarria.

"Pop" served in the US Navy in the Korean War as a radioman 3rd class from 1951-54 aboard the USS Bolster and the USS Yuma.
A favorite pastime that Pop loved to reminisce about was working at the family Diner in Newark, NJ "the Delmonte Diner". After the family closed the Diner in the early 60's, Pop choose a career as a lithographer working for Acme Press, Drucker Printing and the Queens Group until his retirement in 1998.
Pop loved to hunt, fish and adored all his dogs he had over his lifetime but once retired he loved helping taking care of his grandkids with his wife Carol. They both adored their grandkids more than anything.
Pops stories will be greatly missed as even though they were told to us again and again they were never without a good laugh.
A happy man he was he will be remembered fondly and missed greatly.
