Obituary of Edward G Bracco

Edward G. "Fast Ed" Bracco, 78, son of the late Edward and Madeline Bracco was born September 9, 1942 in Vineland, New Jersey. Eddie graduated from Vineland High School in 1960 and married his High School sweetheart Addie Ronchetti in 1961. They loved and enjoyed each other for 59 wonderful years in the house they started their family in. In 1979, with support from his wife, Ed took over his father's business, Bracco's Floor Service, and maintained the businesses remarkable reputation until 2017. At the time of his retirement, Ed was servicing his fifth generation of customers. He was a craftsman to say the least and took immense pride in his work. His natural talents spanned all mediums and art forms. Ed was well known in the Tri State area as "Fast Ed" for his one of a kind, realistic airbrushed murals on cars, vans and motorcycles that his wife Addie would help draw and design. His airbrush work has been recognized in magazines and has won multiple awards. He also excelled in and was awarded for his oil painting, drawing, pastels, ceramics, carpentry and woodworking. Ed was a true renaissance man, there were no limits to his abilities. He enjoyed sharing his creative passions with his family and so gracefully passed those talents onto his grandchildren. Some other hobbies Ed enjoyed were fishing, crabbing, antiquing, attending car shows with his family and friends, riding his bike on the Ocean City Boardwalk with his grandchildren, birdwatching, and cooking. He also enjoyed working on his second love, his 1966 Corvette Stingray and was a longtime member of the Corvette Club of America. Ed was very proud of his maternal Native American heritage and was a descendent of the Rappahannock Tribe of Jamestown, Virginia. He was also a devout Episcopalian and a lifelong member of the Trinity Episcopal Church on Wood Street in Vineland, New Jersey. Ed was also a member of the Highland Anglers Fishing Club and Ocean City Fishing Club where he made lasting friendships and was always known for catching the biggest fish. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Adeline M (Ronchetti) Bracco; his children Kimberly M Bracco (Steve Marcacci) and Jennifer J Bracco (Marius Maven); his grandchildren Chelsea, Marius, Victoria, Catherine, Jacqueline, Kayla, Benjamin and five Great Grandchildren. Also surviving are his sister Brenda J and Ed Yegla and brother Wayne R and Karen Bracco; sister in-law Susan Nanni and sister in-law Berni and brother in-law Spike English. He is predeceased by his mother and father Edward and Madeline (Nelson) Bracco and his father in-law and mother-in-law Ben and Mae (Cifaloglio) Ronchetti. Ed was a devoted son, husband, father, grandfather, friend and mentor to so many. He had an infectious smile and could make anyone laugh. His greatest accomplishment of all were his grandchildren, they were his pride and joy. The countless memories, experiences, lessons, advice, laughs, and jokes that they shared together has made them who they are today. We love you forever Pop, "Best Fishes."
