Funeral arrangements for Eduardo Leaty, assistance needed by family

Eduardo Leaty, store owner gunned down last Saturday,
leaves behind a wife and two young daughters.
Funeral arrangements for Eduardo Leaty, the shop owner senselessly slain in his East 6th Street corner store this past Saturday afternoon, have been completed by the family.

The family will receive family, friends and co-workers at Higgins Home for Funerals Friday evening and Saturday morning before the funeral service, which will take place at the funeral home at 11 AM Saturday (complete details at end of post).

Eduardo's tragic death has left his family in great need of assistance with funeral expenses. Contributions may be made out to and sent to his sister, Marilyn Leaty-Nieves (see details below). Please be as generous as you can. The family will be grateful for any assistance you can offer.

Again, my deepest condolences to his mother, Justa, his wife Margie and their girls Justa and Jessica, his brother Ricardo, his sister Marilyn Leaty-Nieves, whom I had the pleasure of working with for many years at City Hall,
and her husband Samuel.

The VA should be their first call. There are benefits offered to veterans who have honorably served such as coffin, plot in veterans cemetery and grave marker. They should then call the county's victim/witness office in Elizabeth to see what they can do.

Those two should help with a large part of the.expenses. The balance of what is donated can go to his wife and children.
