  • On behalf of the IVC Community and Board of Directors, we wish to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the Petrelli Family. I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ed on the IVC Board of Directors. He worked tirelessly at maintaining the Island View Condominiums and demonstrated a keen knowledge of all things mechanical as well as financial/procedural, while demonstrating a calm, collected demeanor and understated wit. The Board is stunned and will miss Ed tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are sent to all of the Petrelli family. Thank you, Ed, Godspeed, Rest in Peace-I know you’ll keep guiding us from above.

  • Ed, I love you so much and wish I told you more often. I will miss you more than I can express.

    You did so much for the kids and me over the years. We are all so heartbroken.

    Your kids, grandkids, and family will remember you forever. You were the most devoted, husband, papa, son, brother ( and in-law though I thought of you as a brother), and uncle.

    I will do my best to take care of Kathy and protect her like you did.

    I’m sure your parents and family, Linda and Bobby have greeted you at the gates of heaven. We know you will be watching over us all, especially Kathy, your kids and grandkids. You will be by their side forever and ever.

    We are all so blessed to have had you in our lives.

    May you rest in Rest in Peace.

    With love and gratitude,
    Dottie xoxo
