  Edward P. Felt
Computer engineer, BEA Systems, 41, Matawan, N.J.; wife, Sandy; daughters, Adrienne, 14, Kathryn, 11. He was on his way to a business meeting in San Francisco.

As an undergraduate at Colgate University, Edward Felt had to deal with ribbing from pre-med students for acing biology and chemistry courses and destroying the grading curve.

Felt, a computer science major, wasn't interested in medicine. He was interested in learning.

Like many kids growing up, Felt liked to take household items apart to see how they worked. The difference was, he put them back together without any leftover pieces. At 6, he tried to rewire the basement of the family home in Clinton, N.Y.

The oldest of three boys, he set the pace for academic achievement in school.

"We were always being compared to him," said his youngest brother, Gordon, of Remsen, N.Y.

On the third day of freshman orientation at Colgate in 1977, he met another freshman, Sandy Valdez. The two became friends and married in 1982. Sandy Felt remembered how even as a college freshman, her husband would become animated talking about computers, encryption techniques or chaos theory, all the while drawing diagrams and graphs on napkins.

Felt was not jump-off-the-chair animated. Instead, his eyes brightened and his focus became more intense, but he always remained calmly confident of his ability to solve problems and explain.

After earning a master's degree from Cornell University, Felt was hired as a programmer by AT&T. A later stint with Novell morphed into a job in 1996 with BEA Systems, an e-business infrastructure software company in Liberty Corner, N.J.

Felt was one of the top five engineers at the billion-dollar company, and received a U.S. patent in August for a software application he designed for BEA.

He loved gadgetry. His home computer was equipped with everything, and so was the TV. He often ordered items from Scientific American magazine to use while teaching his two daughters about science.

But he also loved being outside. During summers, he often swam 40 laps nightly and ran four miles. He would do his running late at night, after having had dinner with his family and spending time with his daughters.

Felt's wife said his ability to focus provided a sense of security to his family, co-workers and friends.

"He just had an amazing ability to calm himself and to calm others," she said.

Adam D. Jones

Happy Birthday, Adam. You are missed so much every minute of everyday! XOXO ~143~ You will forever be in my heart and on my mind. Love always, Tammy

Laurie Cobb

She was my 3rd and 5th grade teacher. Today I'm 32 and still think about her. She was the best teacher ever. From her hair children stories to her bubbly happiness and kindness she spread. I'll never forget her. She was the teacher who had lunch with the kids in her classroom so everyone had someone to be with. She made my school experience amazing. I will never forget her.. I love you Mrs. Cobb. Sincerely, Forever in my thoughts, Alyssa (Viau) Capone

Larry E Polley Jr

SPC Polley died almost two decades ago so I don't know if this message will be seen. In honor of Memorial Day, my agency hands out cards with names of those who have fallen. This year, 2023, I received the card for SPC Polley and was inspired to look up more on him. I am thankful for his service and sacrifice. My condolences to his family. He is not forgotten.

Paul C. Holter III

Miss you brother

Alex D Gonzalez

Love you and miss you always. Since you been gone it has been hard for everyone. I know you loved what you did, and I want to thank you for our freedom. If I can have you back home and safe living your life man everything would be different. No matter how much money they would offer me I would rather have you alive and home. Money comes and go so it's not worth losing you.

Christopher D Young

hello my name is Jesus Vega I would like to give my condolences to Christopher's family and friends, I served with him in Iraq and slept in the same quarters. I have many fond memories of him. I have never forgotten his sacrifice. I would like to share that the greatest memory I had of Chris is that he would speak highly of his mom and how much she meant to him. Chris was a strong minded person and looked out for other. He was kind and friendly the he made friends with everyone. Chris was truly a great man! I sincerely apologize for not sharing sooner. but would like to express that Chris's memory will never be forgotten! though he is not with us he will always be in spirit! If this message gets to Christopher's mother I she could know she raised a great man and for that I thank you.

James David Parker

I knew James David Parker as "Dave" when he lived in Solon Ohio. We met when I moved into town from out of state. He and his group of friends were a year or two older than me. Dave was a bright beacon of hope and joy to me. I was an unsure young man in a strange place. Dave introduced me to many people and ensured his friends always saved me a seat in the lunchroom. I have fond memories of him and his friends during that time. I doubt so many people would have been as wonderful toward me without Dave's incredible kindness. I've never forgotten his kindness. I hope to be able to pay it forward someday.

Tyler O. Griffin
