I am sure my classmates have lots of great stories about Ed to share here. Few realize that Ed and I are first cousins. His mother. Betty was one of my father's sisters. My dad, Charlie, drove Betty in his '38 Olds from their home in Garfield to the Paramus Roller Skating Rink where she met her future husband Ed, Sr. Aunt Betty told me how protective my dad was to make sure Ed Sr. was a good guy. Well, they married. 

Ed got a lot of his sports skills from his dad. I lived near Farview School where I watched Uncle Ed play excellent softball with his Rescue Squad team. Lou Lanzalotto was often the umpire. 

At PHS I remember what a superb bowler Ed was and like his dad played fantastic baseball. Like his parents, Ed had a great sense of humor. I remember how much fun he was at family events. I envied him because his parents let him shoot fireworks! Ed was the perfect cousin. I will miss him.

I have many a story about Eddie back @ PHS! One classic was when Eddie, prob Phil Sheridan, maybe a few other bad boys were going to "tent out" in LaRose backyard! They rolled Mr. La Rose car out of the garage into the street and drove away for a joy ride!!!! They were all maybe 15? And they got onto Oradell Avenue near the Cleenput homestead, and got stopped by one of Paramus Pd finest! One headlight???? And so the story goes; no license! And guess what prob NO punishment from John Law! Probably only from their parents!!! Eddie,  I will miss your friendship and fun times! 😂❤

Before he retired, Cleenput co-owned of Paramus Dairy with his brother Jack. Many on social media remembered him as their milkman, softball coach, neighbor or friend, as they offered their condolences.
