Born April 9, 1931, in Brooklyn, NY, Ed was the son of Charles and Mary (Stefanski) Haddon. He served in the US Army during the Korean War, and was honorably discharged as a Corporal in 1953.

Ed worked on the Long Island Railroad for 32 years as a train conductor. Upon retiring, he and his wife, Mary, moved to New Berlin in 1980. Mary predeceased Ed in 1993.

Ed also leaves nine grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, and a God-son Charles (Chick) Haddon, of Florida. He also leaves eight loving pets.

Ed was very fond of each of his foster children, especially Edward (Robbie), Nicole Phillyss, Kevin Lennihan, Millie Bice and Patrick Sales.

In addition to his parents and his second wife, Ed was also predeceased by his first wife, Charlotte.
