Edwin G. Fein, 82, of Lee, formerly of Hanover, MA, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on August 1, 2021.
Ed was born on June 9, 1939, the son of Edwin B. and Beatrice A. (Richardson) Fein. He attended school in Quincy, MA graduating in 1957. He enlisted in the USMC Reserves and proudly served for several years furthering his love of the Corps. Ed then went on to graduate from Boston State College in 1967 and began his 36-year career as an Earth Science teacher at Pierce Middle School in Milton, MA.
He was an active participant and long-time devoted member of Resurrection Church in Hingham, MA. He became a member of St. Mary’s Church in Lee, MA where he recently moved to be closer to his daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. Ed always loved to play sports-- anything from golf to tennis to basketball though he is best known for his long walks around town, both in Hanover and Lee. Ed enjoyed life and tried to make the most out of each day. Whether it was meeting his children, siblings, or friends out for drinks, popcorn or a meal, Ed jumped at any and every chance to spend time with them. His fierce love for and encouragement of his children and grandchildren will be forever treasured.
