St Johns County Republican State Committeewoman Becky Reichenberg reported to Historic City News in St Augustine that this morning, long time party leader Edwin R DuPont lost his battle with acute Leukemia.
The 65 year-old DuPont, and his wife Monica, lived on Beachside Drive in Ponte Vedra Beach. In May, he fell very ill and was hospitalized at Shands Medical Center Gainesville; where he began treatment for the disease.
“Ed was our St Johns County Volunteer of the Year, tireless headquarters manager, worker, builder, champion, staunch Republican and proud of it, devoted husband and father, and a dear friend,” Reichenberg told Historic City News editor Michael Gold.
Reichenberg asked that we pray for his family; but, “know that Ed is probably already re-arranging Heaven, organizing something, and placing signs and banners precisely in a row.”
That was our Ed, Reichenberg said.
