He was blessed to have 14 grandchildren Neil, Brittany, Brianna, Larissa, Katie, Kayla, Kelsey, Edward, Ryan, Haley, Hannah, Taylor, Kyle, and Kaileigh, and three great-grandchildren Audriana, Sienna, and Walden, and several cousins. He had unconditional love for his family and friends. His sense of humor and quick-wit, along with his calm demeanor, got them through the good times and the difficult. Edward and Marianne moved to New Jersey in 1959, where Edward worked for IBM for 27 years, retiring at the age of 50. He loved traveling with his wife, golfing with his sons, spending time with his daughter and grandchildren and going to lunch with his friends. He had an avid passion for golf and enjoyed organizing the annual "Coughlin Open" golf outings for friends and family all over the country for 37 years. Edward and Marianne returned to their roots, moving back to Binghamton in 2008. He lived life to the fullest, and will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
