BILLEWICZ SUCCUMBS AFTER CAR ACCIDENT

Edward B Billewicz, 58, passes
Thursday, June 11, 2015 - from Harness Racing Communications

EAST WINDSOR, NJ---Edward B. Billewicz (formerly of Lawrence, MA) passed away unexpectedly Monday, June 8, 2015 in New Jersey, the result of a tragic car accident.

The son of Edward J. and the late Florence (Muenzner) Billewicz, he lived the first half of his life in Lawrence, graduating from Holy Trinity Grammar School, Central Catholic in 1974 and Lowell Technological Institute (now Lowell University) in 1978 majoring in Business Administration. It didn’t take Ed long to realize that work behind a desk was not for him. His love of the outdoors combined with the joy he felt working with harness horses at Rockingham Park in Salem, NH to set his career path.

He moved to New Jersey and worked with well-known trainers Bob Bongiorno and Joe Holloway caring for the best paid trotter of all times, Florida Jewel in the early 90s. His employer for the last 20 years, Greg S. Dey, a veterinarian, said that “Ed was so conscientious, loved the horses, the racing action and the game and can never be replaced.”

From a very early age he shared in his family’s passion for Boston sport teams especially the Red Sox and Patriots. The happiest days of his early life were spent at family gatherings celebrating every holiday and special occasion, attending Red Sox games, vacationing at Wells Beach, ME and playing cards especially forty-fives. Ed later remained true to his New England roots and close to his family coming back home for every holiday and family celebration.

After his move to New Jersey, he met the love of his life, Brenda Adcock, whom he converted to be a passionate Red Sox and Patriots fan. Together they spent fourteen happy years, savoring the gourmet meals Ed prepared, playing with their five cats, and following the Boston teams.

A thoughtful man, a loving and devoted son, brother, partner, nephew, cousin, uncle, Red Sox fan, lover of horses and cats, Ed will be forever missed by his family and friends, and co-workers. He is survived by his Dad, Edward J. Billewicz and sister, Barbara Lohmueller both of East Hampstead, NH; his loving partner, Brenda Adcock of East Windsor, NJ; her parents, Cliff and Gail Adcock of Windsor, Ontario, Canada; uncle, William Muenzner and his wife Diane of Norwich, CT; cousin Kathleen Mikilitus and her husband James of Salem, NH; his CT cousins, William Muenzner; Linda Kogut and husband, John; Edwin Muenzner and wife Nancy; Stefan Muenzner and wife Melinda; and Lillian Billewicz of VT; nephews, Kirk Lohmueller and wife Charlene of CA; Jason Lohmueller and fiancé Lisa Carey of PA; and Elisabeth Lohmueller of GA; grand-nephews Wally and James Lohmueller of CA, and his many other relatives, friends, co-workers and neighbors in MA, NH and NJ.

Arrangements: Relatives and friends are respectively invited to visiting hours Sunday, June14th from 2:00-6:00 PM at the Cataudella Funeral Home, 126 Pleasant Valley Street, Methuen, MA.

His funeral will be celebrated Monday, June 15th at 11:00 a.m. at Saint Lucy Church, 254 Merrimack Street, Methuen, MA. Burial will take place at Elmwood Cemetery, Methuen, MA.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to benefit retired racing horses at the Standardbred Retirement Foundation, 353 Sweetman’s Lane, Suite 101, Millstone, NJ 08535.
