Fitchburg – Edward S. Baho, 93, of Fitchburg passed away in Leominster Hospital on June 4, 2018.
He was born in Fitchburg on August 7, 1924, a son of the late Said and Wadia (Salmo) Baho. Edward was a 1942 graduate of Fitchburg High School, where he excelled on the Baseball team as Shortstop. He also played on the City League Baseball teams for Slattery’s and the Graniteers. Edward enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in 1942, where he proudly served his country during WWII. He was honorably discharged, having attained the rank of Staff Sergeant. While enlisted, Edward served throughout the United States as well as South America. Upon his arrival home in 1945, Edward worked alongside with his father in their family business, Union Furniture. He later ran the business with his brother Frederick, until his retirement in 2000. Throughout his years at the furniture store, it became a gathering place for his many friends to socialize.
He was a skilled woodworker and furniture repairman; he was also a member of the Eagles.
Edward enjoyed traveling and spending summers in Old Orchard Beach in Maine. He was always a creature of habit and his location could often be pin-pointed by simply checking your watch. He loved getting together with his family for parties and gatherings.
He is survived by his siblings, Georgette Noory of Dearborn Heights, MI, Alice Lynch and husband Richard of Owings Mills, MD, and George Baho and wife Marianne of Fitchburg; sister in law, Georgette Baho of Fitchburg. He was the beloved uncle and godfather to many nieces, nephews, including his caretaker, Wayne Gowell, as well as great nieces and nephews, and a great great niece. He is also survived by his close friend of 80 years, Thomas Stagios and Paola and Roberto DerMarderosian.
Edward was predeceased by his brother Frederick Baho, and his two sisters, Mary Varno and Dorothy Gowell.
Eddie, you are the greatest.
