Edward James Cragin, Jr.

November 15, 1961 - September 5, 2019

Eddie fought the fight of his life but the multiple myleoma won and he lost the battle on Sept. 5th. He was a marine stationed at Camp LeJeune North Carolina and drank the water. In his words, "I was killed by friendly fire". If you don't know about it, please google Camp LeJeune water contamination and spread the word to any other marines you may know, a lot of them still do not know.  Ed was the most loving man and I am very blessed to be the one he chose for his wife.  We  had a wonderful life together of 23 years - he is one of a kind and will be missed very much. He was the funniest person I knew and his brothers and him could make you belly laugh. 

He is survived by his wife, his parents, 3 brothers, 1 sister. He is an uncle and a great uncle that loved ALL of his nieces and nephews. He was very much loved by all of his in-laws and all who were close to him.

Ed felt blessed to have had many lasting friendships and some of the best friends anyone could ever hope to have. You know who you are!!!!!
