Edward Cacace, Jr., 81, of East Haven passed away on Jan. 10 at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He was born on Jan. 5, 1939, in New Haven to Edward and Agnes (Caruso) Cacace. Edward is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Catherine (Adinolfi) Cacace; three children, Edward J. Cacace III of East Haven, Maria Mele of Branford, and Steven Cacace (Meredith) of North Guilford; along with five grandchildren, Christian Mele of Branford, Stephen Mele of Branford, Brendan Mele of Branford, Kylie Cacace of North Guilford, and Gabriella Cacace of North Guilford.

Edward was a firefighter for the New Haven Fire Department for thirty years. He was a parishioner at St. Vincent de Paul Church and attended weekly mass. Edward was a very loving father and grandfather and was actively involved in his children’s and grandchildren’s lives. Edward will forever be cherished by his grandchildren, who lovingly called him Poppy. Poppy was often seen at his grandchildren’s various activities and sporting events.
Edward enjoyed his tomato garden and preparing the pool for Sunday family gatherings. On Sundays, he enjoyed his pasta dinner, often completing it with some ice cream. Edward was an avid fan of the New York Giants and Boston Red Sox and enjoyed his yearly trip to watch the game at Fenway Park. He will be greatly missed.
The family received friends on Jan. 14 at the Clancy-Palumbo Funeral Home (Clancy Funeral Home), 43 Kirkham Ave., East Haven.
