August 16, 1941 - September 1, 2017
Borgioni, Edward (Eddie), 76, of Egg Harbor City passed away peacefully at the Absecon Manor Nursing home on Friday, September 1, 2017. Eddie was born in South Philadelphia to John and Maisie (Milioti) on August 16, 1941. After his father died the family moved to Egg Harbor City in 1951 to be closer to Maisie’s family. And that’s where Eddie spent the rest of his life. Eddie was born with a birth defect of his legs. But that never stopped him from running and playing in his younger days. He walked five blocks to and from school four times a day. He later learned to ride a bike and went on to drive a car. When his legs started to weaken, he had to use a wheel chair and his car was outfitted with hand controls. His wheel chair was transported with him by the use of a car topper. When his legs got too weak, he had to give up driving. Eddie was very independent and had his own apartment at Aloe Village for many years before becoming ill. He loved being outdoors. When he could no longer drive, he used his electric wheel chair to get around town. And through all of this, Eddie always had a smile for everyone. Eddie was a frequent visitor to the local nutrition sites and was awarded many certificates for his volunteer work there. He also worked at CODI for many years. He loved to play bingo and was an avid Phillies fan. Eddie was predeceased by his father, John; his mother, Maisie; step-father, Paul Brown; and his niece, Dena Haes Giorgianni. He is survived by his sister, Emily Borgioni Shinpaugh and his great niece, Monica Giorgianni. Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family. Arrangements have been entrusted to Wimberg Funeral Home, 400 Liverpool Ave, Egg Harbor City, 609-965-0357. For condolences, please visit wimbergfuneralhome.com.
