Edward L. Carbonell


Edward L. Carbonell Edward L. Carbonell Edward L. Carbonell, age 46 of Garden City, NY passed away suddenly on Monday, December 31, 2012.

Born in Cuba on May 5, 1966 to Nestor and Maria Carbonell, Edward was an amazing man with a gentle soul and impeccable sense of style. He was loved by everyone who met him. Horacio Silva, in The New York Times, described Ed in the article, “No Store Is a Hero to Its Valet,” 2007 as a man “with a charming bedside manner and the best skin in high-end men’s retail...he was exemplary; champagne and smiles all around.”

Edward was most recently employed as the General Manager of Christian Dior in Manhattan, and had previously worked for Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford and Ralph Lauren. Ed loved to travel to far away places and go on adventures with his wife Leslie. They experienced the northern lights in Iceland, the polar bears in the Arctic Circle, the beaches of Tahiti, and the active volcanoes in Hawaii. Hawaii was near and dear to his heart, as it was also where he and Leslie honeymooned 11 years ago. Of all the experiences, Ed’s favorite was the ongoing journey with his family. Ed was a devoted father to Henry, age 4, and Charlie, age 8 weeks, and loving husband to Leslie.


Leslie, Ed and Henry Carbonell Leslie, Ed and Henry Carbonell Edward is survived by his wife Leslie Segrete Carbonell, sons Henry and Charlie, mother Maria and father Nestor Carbonell of Miami, FL, sisters Maria Carbonell of Queens and Josephine Flatow of Queens, mother-inlaw Pauline Segrete, sisters-in-law Stephanie Segrete Sack and Elyse Segrete Merrifield, and Brothers-in-law David Sack and Chris Merrifield.

We think of you often! And

We think of you often! And wish you peace in the coming year. LOTS OF LOVE YOUR COUSINS .....XXX

this is the first I have

this is the first I have heard of this. I am so sorry for your loss and I know nothing I can say will make it better. I just hope that you are ok and also your children. sometimes things happen that you can not explain and you cant understand and when people say that it was meant to be, it seems like they just don't know what they are talking about. this is so hard to write because we lost a set of twin grandbabies and I thought that no one in the world knew the pain we went through. I have never talked about this before until I saw your loss.it was five years ago and I never thought that we would get through it but because of god we did. so I just pray u will get through it also. god bless you amy and your family.you are such a great person.please remember that.

So very sorry to have learned

So very sorry to have learned of your sudden loss. I see Leslie occasionally at my work. She is a very sweet lady who I have enjoyed ob tv as well. I noticed her today as always with her cute lil boy to see she had another baby. I said hello and then learned of her husbands passing. I pray for all the best for her and her beautiful boys. I hope everyday thwy find wonderful things to smile about!
