Cohen, Edwin of Newton and Palm Harbor, Florida, died peacefully at age 92. Devoted husband of 65 years to Helen (Sallet) Cohen. Loving father to Elise MacLennan (Scott) and the late Leslie Cohen. Predeceased by his parents Phillip and Libby (Saperstein) Cohen and his brother Alan Cohen.
Ed was a uniquely endearing individual who valued his family and his faith.
He appreciated art, nonfiction books, bric-a-brac and fashion, particularly fine neckties.
His most avid interest was music, specifically 1930s and 1940s jazz. Ask him anything about any musician or composition from that era and he would happily deliver all the details.
In retirement he especially enjoyed drumming with the Newton Senior Center Jazz Band, which was fitting for a man who always marched to his own beat.
Interment will be at Sharon Memorial Park following a private graveside service. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to a charity of one's choice.
