Edward Kraft of Hatboro passed away Monday, Oct. 21, 2019, at the Neshaminy Manor after a long illness. He was 85.
A retired machinist, he loved to work in his garden and every summer had a large vegetable garden. He was an avid sports fan, rooting for all of the Philadephia sports teams, especially the Phillies.
