Remembering “The Viz”
Walter “Ed” Vizthum’s large heart gave out on him at 32-years-old on Aug. 28, 2017. He left behind two newborn twin girls and a deep hole in the hearts of his many friends and family members.
To honor his legacy, his friends and family have created the Walter “Ed” Vizthum Scholarship Fund, a 501c3 nonprofit organization with a mission to benefit incoming freshmen students with a scholarship at Holy Spirit High School, his alma mater.
We invite you to join us for our inaugural Drink ‘n’ Shoes Horseshoe Tournament Saturday, July 14 followed by a beef and beer at The Margate Log Cabin, 600 Jerome Ave., Margate, NJ 08402.
Who Was Walter “Ed” Vizthum?
Vizthum, Walter (Ed), – 32, of Absecon, was taken from us too soon on August 28, 2017 of natural causes. Ed loved cooking, the outdoors, fishing and sports. Ed has a contagious laugh, the biggest heart, an incredible wit and sense of humor and he always brightened the room when he entered it. Nothing compared to his love for his family and being a father to Sophia and Sage. He leaves behind the love of his life Rosie Sher, his cherished daughters Sophia and Sage, his adored parents Ed and Denise, his loving brother Rob (Susan), his grandparents Ed Vizthum and Margaret Vizthum and a host of loving family and friends.
