Ed Hallahan, Retired Ridgewood Firefighter, Dead at 85

A life-long resident of the village, Hallahan served the fire department for 30 years.

A World War II veteran and longtime Ridgewood firefighter died at the age of 85 on Tuesday, according to his obituary.

Edward S. Hallahan, a life-long resident of Ridgewood, served in the US Navy during WWII, graduated from Paterson State College following the war and then decided to fight fires in his hometown.

"It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of retired firefighter Ed Hallahan," FMBA Local 47 wrote on its website. "Firefighter Hallahan served in both the volunteer and career departments for thirty (30) years (retired 2/1/81). Please keep Firefighter Hallahan and his family in your prayers."

The Ridgewood Village Council also held a moment of silence in memory of Hallahan on Wednesday night. He was a member of FMBA Local 47 and NJ State Local 500.

Hallahan leaves behind his beloved wife, Dorothy; his son Edward F. Hallahan of Leesburg, VA; Mary T. Mayer of Romansville, PA; and Nancy E. Kendzulac of Flemington, NJ.

His obituary states that "most of all, he loved spending time with his grandchildren," Caitlin, Michael, Tatiana and Alexandra.

Visitation was held Thursday night at C.C. Van Emburgh Funeral Home in Ridgewood with the internment following at Valleau Cemetery.

The funeral mass will be held on Friday at 9:30 a.m. at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, where Hallahan was an usher and parishioner.

In lieu of flowers donations should be made out to the Ridgewood Fire Department, at 201 East Glen Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ 07450.
