Joseph Henry Edgar Dansereau was born in New Bedford on Aug. 4, 1925 and passed away on Aug. 26, 2020 in Uxbridge. He was a former resident of Acushnet and Marion.

“Eddie” was a World War ll veteran.  He enlisted in the Navy at age 17 and was in active duty throughout the war. Upon returning to the United States, he was employed at Rodney Metals and Madewell Manufacturing for much of his career. 

During his 95 years, he was very active in sports including bowling, ping pong, tennis and fishing. One of his favorite pastimes was checkers which he played competitively early in life. He also enjoyed crossword puzzles and won many contests.

Eddie loved his family and especially enjoyed the many cookouts and gatherings during the summer months while living in Acushnet. He always had a smile on his face and would have a good joke for any occasion.

Eddie is survived by his wife of over 65 years, Elaine Dansereau. He is also survived by his son, Douglas Dansereau and his wife Susan of Uxbridge, his daughter Debra Ann Reynolds and her husband Raymond of Wheeling, IL, and their son Eric Reynolds and his wife Erin of Rochester, MN. Eddie is preceded in death by his brothers Roland Dansereau of Dartmouth, and Roger Dansereau of Marion.

A private service will be held at the National Cemetery in Bourne. A memorial service celebrating his life is planned for next year in the South Coast area.
