Obituaries » Edward P. Migliaccio

Edward P. Migliaccio passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 26, 2019. He was 86.

Edward, the son of the late Luigi and Ermalinda (nee-Romei) Migliaccio was born in Paterson on February 15, 1933. He attended Paterson 5 and Central High School, both in Paterson. He then went onto Seton Hall University where he received his BA in Math and English Education as well as both his MAs in Guidance and later Business Administration.

Ed served as an educator, coach and administrator for the Paterson School System for 42 years. His career began as a Math and English teacher in Central High School. After the opening of Kennedy High School, he became a member of the guidance office, scheduling students and staff. In addition, he was also the cross-country and track coach, winning a Passaic County Championship in Cross-Country and an Interstate Relay Championship in track.
Ed moved on to become a Vice Principal at Eastside High School which led to a promotion to the central office as Director of Alternative Studies and Assistant Business Administrator. Ed was then named Director of Human Resources and Personnel for the Paterson Board of Education. After serving many years in that position, he was appointed Business Administrator for the Paterson Board of Education. Ed spent the last years of his career as Vice Principal of School 24 before retiring in December of 1999.

He served as a Board Member for North Jersey Federal Credit Union and was a member of the Italian Circle, the Elks Club & the Passaic County Coaches in Track and Field.

Ed enjoyed his career, dedicating countless hours to his hometown of Paterson but above all, family was important to Ed. He especially loved spending time with his extended clan celebrating holidays, relaxing at the beach and extensive travel through many countries over the years. These moments were truly some of Ed’s favorite things to do. His family meant the world to him.

Ed will be remembered not only for his extraordinary wit and sense of humor but also his joy spending time with his grandchildren.

He leaves behind his beloved wife of 44 years, Adeline (nee-DePasquale); his loving children: Yvonne Migliaccio and Louis Migliaccio and his wife, Joy; his dear sisters: Erma Mastalia and Carmella Romanelli; his cherished grandchildren: William Santoro, Joseph Santoro, Jenna Santoro, Jillian Migliaccio and Troy Migliaccio; his caring in-laws, Anthony DePasquale and his wife, Alberta, Thomas DePasquale and his wife, Jane, Carmen DePasquale and his wife, Janice and Carol Altshuler; his nephew, who was like a son, Joseph Mastalia as well as his many other nieces, nephews and cousins.

A very special thank you from Adeline to her whole family and her friends especially Carol Altshuler, Michelle Ryan, Lorrie Nichols and Edward Safer. She could not have made it through without you…thank you for always dropping everything to be there for her and Ed.
