Edward J. Currier passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, March 19th. The beloved husband of Elaine (Leland) Currier, he was 58 years of age.
Born in Quincy, he was the son of the late Wilbur and Theresa (Murphy) Currier. Having moved to Woburn at the age of ten, Ed, as he was affectionately known, went to St. Charles and then to Malden Catholic High School, graduating in 1967. Following high school he continued his education at Wentworth Institute of Technology, receiving an Associates Degree, and then continued on to Lowell State College, where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Following college Ed began working at Stone and Webster Company where he worked for a number of years. Over the last twenty years he was a self employed landscaper, a job that he thoroughly enjoyed and shared with his sons.
Thirty-eight years ago he married his sweetheart, Elaine Leland, and they made their home in the West Side of Woburn. Together they raised their sons and actively participated in their youth adventures and academic successes. Often in the summertime they would head out to Hummarock for family vacations. Ed had a great love of antique cars and often they would all venture to antique car shows. He himself had restored an antique station wagon that was his ultimate possession. Ed had a wonderful love of music, and often on Saturday evenings he and his wife would find a place where one of their favorite bands were playing, and that was were they would be found.
Ed had a terrific love of family. He cherished all of the times spent with his wife, sons, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles and cousins. He was very devoted to his family and friends, often taking on the role of protector for all that he knew. Offering of himself to help out, or giving that extra word of encouragement to family and friend alike, he had always availed himself.
Ed was a member of the Knights of Columbus.
In addition to his wife of thirty eight years, Elaine, he is lovingly survived by his sons, Keith and Christopher, both of Woburn. He was the dear brother of William J. Currier of Georgia, Therese L. Currier of Woburn, Judy M. McLean of Quincy, Jude Currier of NH, and Peter L. Currier of Sandwich, and loving grandfather of Aidan Currier of Pennsylvania. He is also lovingly survived by several aunts and uncles, along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
The funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Monday, March 24th, at 10:30 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Charles Church, 280 Main Street , Woburn at 11:30. Interment will follow in Calvary Cemetery, Woburn.
Relatives and friends are invited to call at the funeral home on Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m.
Donations may be made in Ed’s memory to the National Autism Foundation, Helping Hand Program, 1330 W. Schatz Lane, Nixa, MO 65714.
