Edwin was born in Philadelphia, PA on August 19, 1927, to Leon and Deborah Krauss. He graduated from South Philadelphia High School for Boys in 1945 and New York University with a degree in Biochemistry in 1950. Edwin and Etta were married on June 14, 1953, in Philadelphia. Edwin worked as an information technology manager for the City of Philadelphia, the United Nations Development Corporation, Hahnemann Hospital, NY City Health and Hospitals Corporation and the Franklin Institute.
Edwin loved food, wine, and travel (especially Paris) and was a phenomenal cook. He rarely used a recipe and even when he was no longer able to see well, could still tell if something was cooked right by his sense of touch and smell. He also loved music and art and played the bassoon throughout much of his life, from high school, through college and in community orchestras. He loved teaching his grandchildren his cooking and music secrets and was always ready with a good story and a laugh.
Edwin is survived by his wife of 67 years, Etta Krauss (nee Litz); children Barton (Rose), Robert (Roberta), and Lori (David); and grandchildren Lauren, Michael, Gabriella and Alexander Krauss, & Daniel, Jacob, and Nathan Fernandez.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Ann's Choice Benevolent Care Fund.
