“The Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders offer their deepest sympathy to the family of Superior Court Judge Edward V. Gannon, who regrettably passed away, at age 63, on Tuesday.


Judge Gannon served with honor and distinction on the bench in Morris, Sussex and Passaic counties over three decades, handling criminal, civil, and family cases. He took a strong interest in juvenile matters, particularly in trying to prevent troubled youths from moving to lives of crime.

Judge Gannon, who grew up in Boonton Township, had long-standing personal and professional ties to Morris County, where he served as municipal prosecutor in Chester and Parsippany before being appointed to the state Superior Court, serving initially on the bench in Morristown.

The freeholders deeply regret the passing of Judge Gannon and offer condolences to his family.’’

Funeral arrangement will be handled by the Codey-Mackey Funeral Home in Boonton.  Please visit for up-to-date details.
