Edward Simeon Jardin, 93, a lifelong resident of Stoughton, died peacefully at the Dwyer Home in Weymouth on Monday, December 18, 2023 surrounded by his loving family. He was the husband of Sandra R. (Starkowsky) Jardin for 58 years. Son of the late Manuel S. and Vicencia C. (Correia) Jardin, he was born at home in Stoughton on February 18, 1930. Ed was the Valedictorian of the Class of 1947 at Stoughton High School and attended Northeastern University and Wentworth Institute of Technology. He was an engineer at Johnson Products in both Boston and New Hampshire for 27 years before retiring in 1997.
Ed was a very active member of the First Church of Christ, Scientist in Sharon. In 1992, he enjoyed helping his wife and other members of the Stoughton Beautification Committee with projects around town. Ed loved singing and was gifted at it. He performed at many minstrels through the years and his family enjoyed listening to him sing right up to the end. He went on many all-night Christmas Eve caroling adventures with family and friends in his younger years. Ed was part of a weekly card playing group with his lifelong friends for many years and also enjoyed playing cards with his family. He was very competitive and it wasn’t often that anyone else was the winner.
Ed enjoyed traveling with his wife to Cancun, Nassau, Vermont and Acapulco, where he and his wife enjoyed parasailing. One of his favorite activities was spending time going to ball games with his son, who was also his best friend. He enjoyed attending his son’s hockey games and never missed a chance to watch his grandchildren play in baseball and softball games. After his retirement, Ed learned to cook with the help of his daughter and became quite the chef until he selectively “forgot” how to and then enjoyed meals on wheels from her. He was an avid Boston sports fan and belonged to several bowling leagues over the years. He also enjoyed gardening, working on projects around his house and babysitting his grandchildren. Ed was meticulous about maintaining his pool which was where he spent a lot of time over the past 40 years making so many great family memories. His greatest joy was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
Ed’s family will forever be grateful for all of the love and support that has been shown to Ed over the past 4 months.
In addition to his wife, Ed is survived by his children, Susan J. Gibson and her husband George, Jr. of Stoughton and Michael S. Jardin and his wife Elizabeth of Bridgewater as well as his grandchildren, Janelle, Jake and George Gibson. He was the brother of Sr. Theresa Jardin, CSJ of Brighton and the late Manuel Jardin, Albert Jardin, Mary “Connie” Cabral and Gilda “Mamie” Giles. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Ed’s Life will be held from the Farley Funeral Home, 358 Park St. (Rt. 27) Stoughton on Friday, December 22 at 11 AM. Visiting Hours Thursday from 4-7 PM. Interment will take place at Evergreen Cemetery, Stoughton. Donations in Ed‘s memory may be made to the charity of your choice.
