Tribute & Message From The Family


Edward Joseph Cozzolino, October 1, 1958 - September 27, 2019

Edward Joseph Cozzolino passed away on September 27th surrounded by family. Eddie was born in San Mateo and lived his entire life on the Half Moon Bay coastside.

Known throughout town as Uncle Eddie, you could always catch him driving around in his truck visiting and waiving to everyone he knew. He could be described as a Half Moon Bay icon, a generous spirit, and a stubborn cowboy with a huge heart.

Eddie loved nothing more than being around family and friends, riding horses, and going to the rodeo. He idolized John Wayne and loved his Oakland Raiders and SF Giants.

Eddie graduated from Half Moon Bay High School in 1977 and worked for the family business most of his adult life selling flowers and produce. He was a celebrated and active member of the community, serving as president of the IDES Society in 2008 and volunteering at Chamaritas, Pumpkin Festivals, and any other town event. If he was asked, he would be there.

Eddie is preceded in death by his father Vincent James Cozzolino, and is survived by his mother Mary Alice, his son Vincent James and wife Brittney, his sister Linda and husband Mike, his brothers Jimmy and Johnny and wives Diana and Jennifer, and his many nieces and nephews.

A visitation will be held on Sunday, October 6th at Miller Dutra from 5-7pm, and a mass will be held on Monday, October 7th at Our Lady of the Pillar at 11am with a reception at IDES Hall to follow. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the John Wayne Cancer Foundation.
