Obituary for Edward C. Schaarschmidt

On December 30, 2019 we lost our loving father and grandfather Edward C. Schaarschmidt at the age of 94. Born in Merrick, Long Island NY, where he managed the family owned chicken farm and flew planes at the age of thirteen. He married at the age of 21 and moved to New Jersey living his entire adult life in Cranford, NJ with his loving wife Helen Schaarschmidt (predeceased in 2003) and raised four children, Bruce Edward Schaarschmidt (predeceased), Robert Floyd Schaarschmidt, James Russell Schaarschmidt and Carol Anne Schaarschmidt Dam.

Edward enlisted in the Navy and served as an Aviation Cadet during World War II. Post war, he received his B.E. from Brooklyn Polytech in Long Island and focused on Chemical Engineering. Immediately after graduating, he began working at Merck, Sharp and Dohme where he was employed for 39 years as Manager of Facilities and Services. During his employment at Merck, Edward had invented and patented the Pyrolysis Apparatus, Deposition Chamber among many others which vastly contributed overall health of the public.

As an avid fisherman, he received his USCG issued Captains licence for 50 ton rated vessels, was President of the Sandy Hook Bay Anglers and spent most weekends fishing off the New Jersey coast.

Edward was also Boy Scout Troop Leader of Troop 84 in Cranford during the 1970's.

Edward is not only survived by his children but also his grandchildren Lisa Schaarschmidt, Kevin Schaarschmidt, Eric Schaarschmidt, Falon Schaarschmidt, Ryan Schaarschmidt, Robert Schaarschmidt, Kirstin Schaarschmidt, Tyler Krumm, Brian Krumm and Keith Schaarschmidt. Additionally he is survived by great grandchildren Shelby Dosiak, Brook Dosiak, Abigail Dosiak, Jamison Schaarschmidt, Ethan Schaarschmidt, Madeline Schaarschmidt and Leo Halladay.

Today he is with his wife and son, together forever in heaven.
