OBITUARY

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, bostonchildrens.org/givenow 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.

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

As a child and teenager at Easter and during the summer, Alana, Mom, and I would visit Uncle Ed, Aunt Essie, Edmond, and Andrew at their home by the river. I remember that Uncle Ed always had an exciting new project: gardening, putting a pond in the backyard, installing the surround sound system, cooking. We would pepper him with questions about what and how he was creating so many awesome things, and he was patient and thoughtful with each question, taking us seriously even as we couldn't wait to ask him the next one. When I think of Uncle Ed, it is his kindness, sincerity and generosity of spirit that shine in my memory.
