Remembering Ed Zegler - 20-year Member of The Arc Family

October 31st, 2016

Ed Zegler first joined The Arc of Essex County in 1996 when he began attending the Avenues Day Program.  He enjoyed his time so much that The Arc of Essex County was at the top of his list for residential services.  He spent his final days among friends at the Seven Oaks group home in Orange.

In his 20 years with The Arc, Ed evolved into a strong advocate for himself.  He was adored by many and he particularly enjoyed hearing from staff how much they loved him!   Ed had endless amounts of energy and looked forward to community outings that included food, bowling, and volunteering at the food pantry.
