EDWARD A. ABATE, 73, a longtime insurance executive, died Tuesday at Pennsylvania Hospital. He was a resident of South Philadelphia for most of his life and lived for 10 years in Springfield, Delaware County.
Mr. Abate started his career at United Life Insurance and about 1960 became vice president at Pilgrim Life Insurance Co. in Folcroft. He stayed with Pilgrim until 1977 and then went on to Pioneer Life Insurance Co. as a sales manager.
Mr. Abate's most recent position was as sales manager for Life & Health America in Center City, where he worked until about six months ago, when he became ill.
Known as "Al" to family and as "Eddie" in South Philadelphia, Mr. Abate was the sort who knew his neighbors well.
"The men always get together and talk, and if someone needed help he was there," said a daughter, Donna Abate Balderson. "His generosity was known throughout the neighborhood."
Born and raised in South Philadlphia, Mr. Abate graduated in 1933 from South Philadelphia High School. He attended Penn State University for a time, and during World War II he worked at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard.
Survivors: his wife of nearly 49 years, Ann Lozitsky Abate; daughters, Donna Abate Balderson and Dorothy Mooney; a grandaughter, two brothers and a sister.
