STOKES, Edward Enessen of Cherry Hill, New Jersey, passed away on April 1, 2020, at the age of 70. He was the devoted husband of Barbara (nee Johnson). He was the loving father of Derek Stokes (Katie), Jawwaad I. Johnson (Stephanie), Jumaah I. Goldberg (Andrew), and Jihsaan I. Johnson (Roksana). He was the dearest, loving Opa, (Grandfather) to Ryan, Blair, Leo and Paxton. Edward was born in Nuremberg, Germany on September 22, 1949. He moved to the United States with his parents, Norman and Babette, (nee Monig) Stokes, when he was five years old. He graduated from Rancocas Valley High School and thereafter took college courses at Burlington County College. After twenty five years, he retired from his duties as a Correctional Officer at the Garden State Youth Correctional Facility. He studied Tang Soo Do Karate for several years, attaining the status of a third degree Black Belt while at Hamilton Karate Academy, where he also assisted in training many students. He cherished spending time with his family and always enjoyed riding his “Harley Davidson” motorcycle, especially when his wife Barbara was along for the ride. He was formerly a member of the Camden County Harley Owners Group. (CCHOG) A beloved friend, a strong example of character for many, he will be deeply missed. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus, and limitations imposed, funeral services at this time will be delayed. At a future date, to be determined, a Memorial Service celebrating Edward’s life and the burial of his Urn will take place.

My sincere condolences to Barbara Ann and the family. My funny story is how Barbara and I have often shared how much our "Edwards' " demonstrated such love and compassion for us, and how deeply we did our best to return that love. Barbara graciously stopped by to celebrate my husband Edwards' birthday dinner and as she went to write his name on the card she realized that she had forgotten his name. When she finally asked a family member, she was tickled to the point we actually both laughed so hard, I was able to get a photo of us still smiling about the love we shared for each other and our own Edwards' respectively. Transitioned but definitely not forgotten. The love in our hearts remain. Peace and Blessings. Love you much, Dee Vanderlip

“God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes
and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4)
