VIRGINIA BEACH – Edmund R. Goldsticker, 88, passed away on July 3. 

Eddie was born in 1935 in Norfolk, Va., to the late Harry and Molly Goldsticker. He was a graduate of Maury High School and the Norfolk division of the College of William & Mary and had a successful career as a certified public accountant after serving his country in the National Guard. 

Eddie played the French horn in high school, in the Norfolk Symphony as a young man, and again in his retirement. When he wasn’t spending time with family and friends, he was busy volunteering in his community. Throughout the years, Eddie lent his accounting and financial skills to his synagogue, Jewish Family Service, and the Oceans condominium board. He enjoyed working as an election official each fall and volunteered for years at Sentara Virginia Beach General as the golf cart driver. He was the self-appointed librarian at his assisted living facility and spent hours cataloguing and labeling the books. 

Eddie was a loving and dedicated husband to his best friend and love of his life, Marcia. They recently celebrated 65 years of marriage and were still seen holding hands every day. He was adored by his daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren. He had loving relationships with his sister-in-law, Jean, and brother-in-law, Stephen, as well as his nieces, nephews, and extended family. 

Eddie is survived by his loving wife, Marcia Goldsticker, his devoted daughters, Helen Sissel, Laurie (Gary) Siegel, and Susan (Joe) Hooks, and his cherished grandchildren, Joshua, Zachary, Molly, and Bryan. He was predeceased by his loving parents, Harry and Molly Goldsticker, his sister, Ruth Becker Levinson, his niece, Arlene Sidman, and nephew, Alexander Becker. 

A service was held at H.D. Oliver Funeral Apartments, Norfolk Chapel. Interment followed at Forest Lawn.
