Obituary for Edward W. Christie, Jr. at Marvil Funeral Home, Ltd.

It is with very deep sadness that we inform everyone of the passing of our past chief, Edward “Captain Ed” Christie. Chief Christie served the community of Folcroft for over 25 years as police officer and chief. After his retirement he continued his public service as District Justice. He was a member of FOP Lodge 27 for 41 years. Chief Christie always had his officers back and will certainly be missed for all his great stories, friendship and loyalty by all who knew him.
