BERGENFIELD, N.J. — Ed Benedick Demesa of Bergenfield died on Oct. 11. He was 26 years old.
Ed lived with his mother Merlinda Ramos, two sisters; Madeline Demesa and Danielle Demesa, who he has left behind.
Born on August 2, 1991, he spent most of his life in Bergenfield. He graduated from Bergen Community College with a technical degree in the veterinary program, and took up a passionate career of working with animals.
He often home photos of the very animals that bit and scratched their way to his heart.
In his work or private affairs, he loved all forms of life. Outside of work he enjoyed long rides on his motorcycle, sunsets, shooting bows and relaxing with good company.
More than $10,000 had been raised as of Wednesday morning on a GOFUNDME set to cover costs of the funeral and more.
