OBITUARY

Edwin Wiscowitch

June 17, 1952November 19, 2019

Edwin Wiscowitch, 67, went to be with our Lord and Savior on November 19th, 2019 at 5:08 a.m. in Carrollton, Texas.

Edwin, or "Eddie" as he was lovingly known, was born to Father, Julio Wiscowitch and Mother, Carmen Edith Ruiz Arvelo in New York City, New York. He attended St. Bernard Catholic Academy

Eddie (aka Whiskey), spent most of his life in NYC, retiring to Bedford TX in 2014. He was an avid sport fan. His allegiance never wavered from his teams, the Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox and the NY Jets. Independent, strong-willed, energetic and fun-loving, Eddie was a living personification of what it meant to be a New Yorker. He was a fighter and a survivor. His eyes and smile would light up a room, and his carefree attitude was contagious to any of those who were fortunate to be around him, especially when music was playing. Kahlil Gibran said, “Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife.” Nevermore was this evident than when his favorite artist from the 60’s and 70’s was playing, particularly songs by the great Sir Elton John. His love of music always made him the life of the party and the center of the dance floor. All worries and cares would melt away as he showed others what it meant to simply enjoy the moment. Edwin lived life just like he played his music, at full blast and his “rough around the edge’s” demeanor could never disguise the size of his good-natured loving heart. While never married and without children, he formed special bonds with the children of his friends and family, cherishing them with fully devoted love and respect.

He is survived by his Mother- Carmen Edith Ruiz Arvelo; Sister- Diana Wiscowitch; Brother- Michael Wiscowitch; ; Aunt- Miriam Fonseca; Uncle- Hector Ruiz, Jose A. Ruiz, William Ruiz, and Enrique Ruiz; Nieces and Nephews- Monica Suarez, Ramon (Moncho) Suarez, Sheena Rodriguez, Daniel Rotondo, Bianca Wiscowitch, Melissa Wiscowitch Shaw; Grand nieces/nephews: Caelen, Rebeca, David, Dominick, Heaven, Savannah (Baby Girl), Benjamin, Juliet; Other Important Family/Friends: Dina Wiscowitch, Letty Ruiz, Tania Suarez, Oscar Rodriguez, Nathalia Rotondo, Travis Shaw, Reina Ruiz, Linda Silva, beloved family & friends in New York & at Danny’s Celtic Pub. He is preceded in death by his Brother, Julio Wiscowitch

Edwin, you were an important part of our lives. We are grateful to the Lord Almighty for the time we had with you. Thank you for the laughter, the friendship, the love and most importantly the memories. You are loved and indubitably missed. And while our hearts ache with the pain of losing you, we take comfort in knowing you are in God’s loving grace and presence, free from the pain, suffering and sorrow that this world brings. Until we see you again. Chow!

Circle of life From the day we arrive on the planet And blinking, step into the sun There's more to see than can ever be seen More to do than can ever be done There's far too much to take in here More to find than can ever be found But the sun rolling high Through the sapphire sky Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the Circle of Life And it moves us all Through despair and hope Through faith and love Till we find our place On the path unwinding In the Circle

The Circle of Life... It's the Circle of Life And it moves us all Through despair and hope Through faith and love Till we find our place On the path unwinding In the Circle The Circle of Life

Songwriters: ELTON JOHN / TIM RICE

Eddie and I met in third grade at Saint Bernards .From the very first day until last we talked he would always make me laugh and forget about life for awhile.
Eddie as I called him was known and loved by so many and kept the friendships burning through out his lifetime. So many memories we shared whenever we talked. Crying and laughing. Some bitter sweet but at the end of every conversation we were laughing. He lifted my spirt always. Eddie was not just and friend he was family to all of us. We all loved him and he will be missed. I believe he is at peace and we will one day all be together again. “Get the gun” , Eddie knew what it meant for both he and I. We would laugh. Miss you my brother. Forever in my heart. Linda aka Sis ❤️

Whisky is how I knew Edwin. I haven’t seen him in many years but my husband Mike was dear friends with him when they were younger. I can say “best friends”.
He was a man with a lot of heart and I must commend whoever wrote this obituary. It describes and memorializes him to the tee. You will be missed, Whisky! ❤️
