Edmond F. Nunes

February 1, 1956July 15, 2020

Edmond F. Nunes, age 64, of Somerset, passed away after a brief illness on Wednesday, July 15, 2020. He was the loving husband of Estelle Nunes, with whom he shared forty-one wonderful years of marriage.

Born in Munich, Germany, he was the son of the late Edmond F. (SGT, US Army) and Josephine Nunes.

Always professional and meticulous, Ed was a master architectural woodworker. He utilized this extensive knowledge and experience in the industry to create his own architectural woodwork engineering and detailing business. His unparalleled work ethic instilled an appreciation of continued learning in his children and grandchildren.

Ed was a strong, kind, intelligent and resourceful family man. He enjoyed gardening, woodworking, cooking, hunting and fishing. He was a beautiful trumpeter. A natural teacher, Ed enjoyed sharing his skills with others. He never hesitated to help someone, nor did he ever allow them to leave his home hungry. He enjoyed his hobbies and at times seemed like a whirlwind of activity; but he always made time to appreciate the little things. Ed led a full and happy life, inspiring others to do the same.

In addition to his wife, survivors include: his sons and daughters-in-law, Edmond M. Nunes and wife Nicole, Andrew L. Nunes and wife Prianka Chawla; his precious grandchildren; his sister, Maria Medeiros and her husband Joseph; as well as a large extended family.

Donations in Ed’s name may be made to Boston Children’s Hospital, or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

His funeral services will be held at a later date. Arrangements are in the care of Waring-Sullivan Home at Rose E. Sullivan, Somerset.

I came upon this news today, and was so saddened by it. Eddie and I were classmates from 6th grade at the Village School through high school. I knew him as a true "stand-up" guy . He would not have considered me a friend, but I respected him as we both matured. As a member of the SHS Jazz & Marching Bands, he and his music were a source of great fun for so many of us. I am so sorry for this loss to your family.

Maria and Joe I offer you my most sincere sympathy. I can tell you I loved my parents very much yet the loss of my sister Hanna has given me more pain then I ever thought I would have. It’s unbelievable and I wish you peace on your loss. I do remember Edmond when I visited my grandparents and recognized him right away. Again my sympathy and prayers go out to you.

Growing up, visiting Uncle Ed, Aunt Essie, Edmond, and Andrew was always a delight. Driving up to their big brown house across from the water, there was a giddy expectation of fun to be had, of easy laughter, and of delicious homemade food to be shared.

Theirs was a family affair, always— whatever they did, they seemed, in one way or another, to do together. And this closeness of theirs is a testament to not only their family, but also to the incredible character of Uncle Ed.

Uncle Ed was a leader, a moral and good man, and someone, as a child I found so easy to trust. I remember just delighting in his presence and knowing he was a very special uncle.

The world has lost a gem of a man, but I know that same incredible character of Uncle Ed’s lives on in Aunt Essie and Edmond and Andrew—there’s no way it couldn’t, it was just too strong.

One memory that comes to mind... we were at Ed and Essie's for many holidays and Ed was always cooking. I would wander around the kitchen to see what I could pick at that he was cooking. He never complained. One of our parties not that long ago Ed wandered into my kitchen while I was cooking. Now mind you, my kitchen is a lot smaller and Ed might have made a suggestion or two to which while smiling I told him “that’s it, out of my kitchen”. The nerve of me but he just took it in stride!
We will miss him dearly.
Essie, Edmond and Andrew we are always here for you. Love us
