Edward McManimon, III

Edward Joseph McManimon, III, 77, died peacefully February 2, 2024, at his home with his family after a long illness. Ed helped and inspired many to realize their potential. His commitment to humility in service to others will be missed.

Born in 1946 and raised in Ewing, NJ, Ed was the second of nine children of Edna and Edward Joseph McManimon, Jr. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Christina; their two children, Maura Fennessy (Conor) and Christopher; and grandchildren, Liam McManimon, and Seamus and Killeen Fennessy. He is also survived by siblings Pat McManimon (Karen), Jane Cahill (Bill), Maryann Steinborn (Ed), Eileen McManimon, Jim McManimon (Mary), Tom McManimon (Mary), Tracy McManimon (Gary Hansen), and sister-in-law, Debbi McManimon, and was “Uncle Ed” to over twenty nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brother, Michael McManimon.

Ed graduated from Notre Dame High School in 1964 and earned his bachelor and law degrees from Georgetown University in 1968 and 1971. As Class of 1968 Reunions Chair, he also served on the Board of Governors of the Alumni Association and was recipient of the John Carroll Award and William Gaston Award – the two highest alumni awards given by Georgetown University.

Ed began his legal career in 1971 with the Honorable George H. Barlow of the United States District Court in Trenton. Following this clerkship, he became associated with the firm that now bears his name, McManimon, Scotland & Baumann, LLC, and for whom his distinguished career would span more than half a century. Ed was honored by the New Jersey Law Journal as a recipient of its Inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award and by the New Jersey League of Municipalities with the "Distinguished Public Service Award".

Ed enjoyed frequent visits to Ireland, summers at Long Beach Island, and golf at Galloway National or wherever he could plan a round. He was often seen walking the streets of Pennington with Pat, or Christopher, or alone with his headphones. It is certain The Pennington School girls’ soccer team will miss their #1 fan behind the fence.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, February 8, 2024, from 4.00 p.m. until 8.00 p.m., and on Friday, February 9, 2024, from 9.45 a.m. until 10.45 a.m., at St. James Roman Catholic Church, 115 E. Delaware Ave, Pennington, NJ. A service will be held on Friday, February 9, 2024, at 11.00 a.m., also at St. James Church. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, 72 Escher Street, Trenton, NJ 08609.

Ed’s commitment to others endures as inspiration to all whose lives he touched.
