Edward F. Hayden of Lansdale, PA, died on Thursday, May 28, 2020, at Abington Hospital/Jefferson Health in Abington, PA. He was 52 years old.

Edward was born and raised in Ambler, PA, and is the dear son of Jesse and Carol Hayden.

Mr. Hayden attended Archbishop Kennedy High School and was a 1985 graduate of Wissahickon High School. He began his career as a service writer for West German Imports in Fort Washington. He worked for several automobile dealerships, including Peruzzi Toyota, Thompson Toyota, and, most recently, John F. Kennedy Ford in Pottstown. Everywhere he worked, Eddie developed a large group of coworkers who became friends.

Eddie was a huge Philadelphia sports fan, especially of his beloved E-A-G-L-E-S. He enjoyed playing ice hockey with his brothers at the Face-Off Circle and played goalie with his roller hockey league at the Roller Ranch in Line Lexington. Eddie also enjoyed a good game of golf. He was an avid reader and music lover and had a large collection of CDs and history books.

Eddie was devoted to his family, always the first to show up and the last to leave family events. He was the best uncle in the world and loved his nieces and nephews unconditionally. Eddie will always be remembered by family, friends, and coworkers who loved his sense of humor, quick wit, and his funny smirk on his face. Those who met Eddie, it didn't take long to love his personality.

Edward is survived by his loving parents, Jesse and Carol (nee Stoertz) Hayden, of Lansdale. He is the dear brother of Kathy Hayden of Scottsdale, AZ; Mike Hayden (Christine) of Phoenixville, PA; David Hayden (Marie) of Broomall, PA; and Patty Hartman (Tom) of Telford, PA. He was the proud and loving uncle of Caitlin (Ian), Erin (Fred), Zachary, Kamryn, Samuel, Jacob, and Lucas; godfather of Caitlin and Lucas; and grand-uncle of Caleb, Lianna, and Erick.

Relatives and friends are invited to Eddie's Memorial Mass on Saturday, May 8, 2021, at 10:30 AM, St. Anthony of Padua Church, 259 Forest Avenue, Ambler, PA 19002. Words of Remembrance will begin at 10:15 AM. Mass will be celebrated by Msgr. Stephen P. McHenry.

I had the pleasure of working with Ed and becoming his friend. He brought not only a keen sense of humor to every situation, but also his thoughtfulness and intellect. We played golf together on several occasions and it was always a good time. Ed is also the principal player in a practical joke we played on my wife using his quick wit and sense of humor. The story is famous in my family and whenever I talked to Ed, invariably it came up. The world lost a good man and I will remember him always. RIP Ed.

The old days in California. No better friend!

Eddie was my Buddy! No way this is happening!
He was there during my divorce...I was there for his. We talked politics (we always agreed!), we were opposites in sports E-A-G-L-E-S (Cowboys here!) and Phillies (Braves for me)...we loved playing golf. Our golf scores were generous due to unlimited handicaps we gave to each other! At the end of the day, we both scored under a 100...well that's what we gave ourselves.

My deepest condolences to the Hayden family. Especially to Ed’s nieces and nephews. He adored them all more than anyone can even fathom. They were his world. I’ve worked with Ed at 2 dealerships and he was quite simply the nicest and funniest guy you’d ever meet. He had a huge heart. He is going to be dearly missed by everyone he’s crossed paths with. I know this doesn’t bring him back, but I hope everyone’s kind words can at least bring you all a little comfort.

With love,
Alyssa
