Obituary of E. Edwin Wiesner Jr.
Ed Wiesner of Sandwich, MA passed away suddenly on Sunday, August 23, 2020 with his beloved wife Rose Provencher and four sons, Jeff, Chris, Steve and Matt by his side at Cape Cod Hospital. He passed approximately a week after he celebrated his healthy 80th birthday on August 17th. Born and raised in Brockton, Massachusetts he was the son of Ernest E. Wiesner, M.D. and Doris F. (Billings) Wiesner. During his childhood and as an adult, he enjoyed fun Cape Cod summers at the family summer home in Dennis with his former and departed wife Joann Wiesner. He had fun times with his brother Kenneth B. Wiesner, M.D. and wife Barbara of Carmichael, California and their 2 children –Jason and Lindsay and also with his sister Priscilla (Wiesy) MacMillan of Duxbury, Massachusetts and her 2 daughters –Erin and Alice Anne. His sons Jeffrey Wiesner and Christopher Wiesner always joined in with the shenanigans. One of Ed’s proudest moments was when he took his Brockton South Little League baseball team to the championship two years in a row during the early 1980’s. He was proud to have his niece Marci (Crawford) Moulton on the team with his sons and his nephew David Crawford. Ed graduated from Brockton High School and then attended the University of Pennsylvania where he joined Theta Xi O56 Fraternity. He recently received the Order of The Golden Star for his 50 years of membership. He graduated from Bentley College of Accounting and Finance with a Bachelor of Science in accounting, 1965. His accounting/tax career led him and his partners to form The Pm Group which then evolved into Medical Dental Consultants of Cranston, Rhode Island and Brockton. In the early 1990’s, he created his solo practice in Sandwich, PM Group – Accounting & Tax Services, Inc. He enjoyed many years working with his son Chris as they provided financial services to physicians and dentists on Cape Cod and around Southeastern Massachusetts and throughout the Boston area. Ed was a certified EA (Enrolled Agent with the IRS) and notary public. Additionally, he was a CHBC (Certified Healthcare and Business Consultant). He maintained many professional memberships including the MA Society of Enrolled Agents, National Society of Tax Professionals, National Association of Health Care Consultants, National Society of Accountants, and American Society of Notaries. He loved traveling throughout the Caribbean over the years as well as attending numerous professional conferences across the country and Canada. He was an avid fan of all New England sports. He frequently sent Peanuts cards to family members, especially to his two younger sons Steve and Matt McGrail. Rose and Ed were together for 30 years and had a loving life enjoying the home that they built in 1996. They loved their doxie Trucker, playing horseshoes in the backyard, reading Facebook posts about the grands, Lucas, Noah and Audrey McGrail and Brayden McGrail. The grands provided Grampy with many laughs and hugs. Rose immediately knew when they met that he was caring, trustworthy, reliable, genuine, dependable, honest, and smart. He was Rose’s rock and her pillow to lean on. His gentleness was his strength. Saying “Do you know my name” should not be the last words spoken – but they were. He slipped away too quickly. A wake has been planned for Wednesday, September 9, 2020 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. Nickerson-Bourne Funeral Home – 154 Route 6A – Sandwich. Due to the current precautions surrounding Covid-19, all are required to wear a facial mask. In lieu of hugging, we ask that you place your hand over your heart to express your sorrow as you greet the family members. The funeral home will limit guests to 20 in the viewing room.
