Obituary:
Edward A. Morin, 80, of Northampton, MA and Bradenton, FL, passed away peacefully Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014, at his home in Florida after a lengthy illness. Born August 5, 1933, in Northampton, Massachusetts, he was the son of the late Arthur J. and Agnes (Lamica) Morin. Ed was a lifetime resident of Northampton until he moved to Florida in 2000 for winter seasons. He attended the former Annunciation School in Florence, graduating from Northampton High School in 1951, where he played on both the football and baseball teams, and was manager of the basketball team. Ed served in the U.S. Army from 1951 to 1953. He was a proud combat veteran of the Korean War, serving as a heavy-mortar operator and attaining the rank of sergeant. He was especially proud to have earned the Combat Infantry Badge.
After returning from military duty, he began his long career in banking at the former Northampton National Bank, attending schools of finance and trust at the School of Banking at Williams College, and the Univ. of Chicago. After twenty-three years at the Northampton National, he took a position as Chief Financial Officer at the Florence Savings Bank in 1978 and was appointed President in 1986. Ed retired in 1995 after a 40-year banking career. Ed was a Life-Member of the Elks, a member of the V.F.W., the American Legion, the Korean War Veterans' Assn., and the 7th Infantry Division Assn. He served for many years on the Finance Committee of the former Sacred Heart Church in Northampton, Mass., where he was also a lector and sang in the choir. He served as Treasurer of the Northampton Forbes Library for over 20 years, and was a member of the Northampton Retirement Board for 21 years.
In his retirement, Ed enjoyed traveling extensively with his wife and friends to numerous countries. An avid Red Sox and Patriots fan, he followed them closely. He also enjoyed spending time with new friends in Florida, golfing, singing in his church choir in FL, reading novels, and attending as many of his family's events as possible. Trips he especially enjoyed were the “Korea Revisit Program” for combat veterans, sponsored jointly by the Korean War Veterans Assn. of Korea and the U. S. Korean War Veterans Assn. Also, in 2011, he was pleased to join a group of veterans and spouses on a 4-day trip to Washington D.C. sponsored by the Northampton Veterans' Association, visiting the Capitol and all of the War Memorials.
Ed is survived by his wife of 56 years, Rose-Marie (Kirouac) Morin; his son, Peter Morin of Bristol, Conn., his daughter, Cam Kelly and her husband, Mike, of Cary, NC, his son, David Morin and his wife, Susan, of Ipswich, Mass., and his son, Scott Morin of Northampton, Mass., as well as his grandchildren, Sean, Ryan and Dana Kelly, and Marc and Andrea Morin. He is also survived by his brothers, Dr. Bernard A. Morin (Barbara) of Charlottesville, VA, and Pierre Morin (Sue Shea) of Savannah, GA., and his sister, Joy Tudryn of Hadley. He was predeceased by his brother, Arthur J. Morin, Jr. (Joyce).
