Edward A. Farinon, 72, passed away peacefully with family by his side on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at St. Anne’s Hospital in Fall River, Massachusetts.
Born in North Adams, MA on October 4, 1947, Edward was the son of late Edward and Mary (Peat) Farinon. He was a graduate of North Adams High School and began a career as a textile colorist, working for Arnold Print Works, Dartmouth Finishing, Brittany Dyeing & Printing, and Slater Screen Print.
While in North Adams, he met the love of his life of 35 years, Laurell J. (McElreath) Farinon. Ed and Laurell married on October 22, 1988 in the village of Assonet in the town of Freetown, MA. Together they made their home in Acushnet, MA and adopted and raised their one child, Maria L. Farinon.
Edward worked hard to balance his work and family life. Together, the Farinon family enjoyed spending time with friends and relatives at his New Hampshire camp, skiing, playing golf, and watching sports. Ed was much loved by his friends and family and was known for his quick sense of humor and could always be found telling funny stories of his childhood or day to day life.
Edward A. Farinon will forever be remembered by his beloved wife, Laurell J. (McElreath) Farinon, his daughter, Maria L. Farinon, and his sister, Deborah (Farinon) Isbell of Acushnet, MA. He is survived by his 9 nieces and nephews, Carol, Chilli, Lyndsey, Courtney, Amelia, Jeff, Justin, Nicholas, and Adam; 4 great nieces and nephews: Samantha, Max, Katie, Joe, Zoe, and Ada; his sister-in-laws, Lynn and Michele; and brother-in-law, Rob. He is also survived by his dearest friends, Joe and Julieta, Nancy and Donna, Jose and Andrea; and his beloved dog, Roscoe and cat, Bruin.
Edward’s family wishes to extend their sincere gratitude to Dr. Stephen Butler at Dartmouth Medical Center, the staff at the Fresenius Kidney Care Dialysis Centers, the caregivers at Community Nurse Home Care located in Fairhaven, MA, and the doctors and staff at St. Anne’s Hospital located in Fall River, MA.
In keeping with Edward A. Farinon’s wishes, there will be no funeral services. His cremation remains will be scattered near his beloved New Hampshire camp in October.
