Please share a memory of Edward to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Edward J. Keshecki, 69, of New Dorp, passed away on March 11, 2022. He was the beloved husband of Karen Keshecki for 42 years; loving father of Kimberly Cocozza and her husband Shane; his daughter Erika Keshecki; cherished grandfather of Avianna and Sienna Cocozza. Mr. Keshecki was born in New Jersey to the late Edward Keshecki Sr. and Mary Evans and raised in Staten Island, NY. He graduated from Port Richmond High School in Staten Island. Edward is an alumnus of the prestigious John Jay College of Criminal Justice. After a career with the NYPD as a responding Police Officer, and after owning his own Staten Island alarm company (Gotham Alarm) for 20 years, Edward joined Statewide Fire Corp as the Vice President. He was NICET Fire Alarm Level IV certified and became an authority figure on all aspects of the fire alarm industry. He was one of the lucky few people to genuinely love his job and career. He was the first President of the Verrazano 10-13 Association. He was also a member of the New York Fraternal Order of Police. In 2009, he chaired the NY Fire Alarm Association Central Station committee, served as President of the NY Fire Alarm Association from 2010-2011, and was honored in 2012 by the FDNY Bureau of Fire Prevention for "Commitment to Life Safety". He was an active member of the NYFAA Board of Directors- Liaison to Metro Area AHJ's, including the FDNY and the Nassau County Fire Marshal's office. Other affiliations include the NJ Automatic Fire Alarm Association, SFPE Metro Society of Fire Protection Engineers NYC, NJ Electronic Security Association, NY Electronic Security Association and the Metropolitan Burglar Fire Alarm Association. He was also a guest presenter on "Fire Alarm Communications" at NY Fire Alarm Association and AFAANJ New Automatic Fire Alarm Association. His favorite times were spent with his family and doting on his two beautiful granddaughters. He enjoyed playing and watching golf on TV. Ed was a man who loved to smile and joke and exhibited unconditional love to his family. His tireless love and devotion to his family were evident even in his final moments. He was a wonderful husband, who always made sure to tell his wife Karen just how loved she was by him. He was the greatest father anyone could ask for, as he was always sweet, kind, loving, and supportive. His daughters knew they could count on him for anything and treasured the close bond they shared. Ed truly lived his fulfilled life as a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. Family was most important to him. Everyone who knew him held him in highest regard and loved him dearly. He will be missed beyond measure and the memories shared by his loved ones will live on forever in their hearts. Visitation at the Matthew Funeral Home, Inc., 2508 Victory Boulevard, on Monday, 3/14, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, 3/15, at 10:00 am, at the funeral home.
