Obituary for Edward P. "Ed" Rompa, Jr.

Edward P. "Ed" Rompa Jr., of Romeoville, IL, formerly of Chicago, IL, passed away peacefully at Joliet Hospice Home, Joliet, IL on Thursday, September 6, 2018, at the age of 79. Born in Chicago, IL on May 9, 1939, he was the son of the late Edward and Josephine (nee Pajor) Rompa.

Ed was born and raised in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood and served in the U.S. Army. He loved his position at the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, where he was as a typesetter for 20 years, and later, worked for the State of Illinois in the Highway Maintenance Department, where he eventually retired in 2002. Ed was proud of his sons and enjoyed his grandchildren so much. He loved attending their football, baseball and basketball games and was an avid Joliet Catholic Hilltopper fan (where his sons attended). Ed liked dogs, especially his English Bulldogs, and also loved his lake home at Lake Wildwood in Varna, IL.

Ed is very much loved and will be terribly missed.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Delphine Rompa (nee Markuszewski); sons, Edward (Michelle) Rompa and Mike (Helen) Rompa; and grandchildren, Brennen, Cullen and Trayton Rompa.
