  • Edward Dwight Carpenter Jr., 81, of North Huntingdon, formerly of Litteton, Mass., passed away after a brief illness, one year ago today, April 19, 2014, in Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital, with his devoted and beloved wife, Jil, at his bedside. Ed was the only child of the late Edward and Victoria (Kuczylowski) Carpenter Sr. He was born April 5, 1933, in Wheeling, W.Va., and raised in McMurray. He graduated from Peters Township High School where he played center on the football team. Ed enlisted in the Army during the Korean War and served in 821st Engineer Battalion. He went on to graduate from California State University and Boston University as an English major. Ed had a distinguished career in the Chelmsford High School in Massachusetts and was in charge of the English Book Closet and Honor Society advisor. His good friend and co-worker, Barry Hazzard, spearheaded a scholarship fund in Ed's name. Ed was a proud member of the First Presbyterian Church in Irwin. He attended Book Club and Tai Chi classes at Redstone Colonial Estates and was a member of the Penn's Woods Seniors. All who met Ed knew him to be a gentle, kind and generous gentleman and a wordsmith. His most frequently used word was thank you. His poem "To Jill" was entered in a poetry contest, published and selected as a semifinalist. Ed married his college sweetheart, Sondra Jil Coffman, on July 20, 2012, in the Norwin Public Library butterfly garden officiated by the Rev. Ronald Durika. Ed's favorite meal was a crock of French Onion Soup and a steak at the Jacktown Ride and Hunt Club. He remained loyal to his Patriots and Bruins but, would cheer on the Steelers and Penguins as long as they weren't playing his old teams. On the date that would have been his and his wife's second wedding anniversary, Ed's ashes, along with those of his feline companion, Mr. Tango, and feline buddy, Mr. Deiter, were scattered at a private ceremony. Contributions toward Edward Dwight Carpenter Jr. Scholarship fund can be sent to: Chelmsford High School Alumni Association c/o Scholarship Committee, 200 Richardson Road, North Chelmsford, MA 01863.
