Edward A. Jenney
A friend to all

Edward A. Jenney, 70, of Brook Street, died on Wednesday, January 17, at Concord Health Care Center following a battle with lung cancer.

Born in Concord on October 11, 1936, Mr. Jenney was the son of the late Richard and Edna (Dyson) Jenney. He graduated from Concord High School and attended Northeastern University. Mr. Jenney lived in Concord until his family moved to Carlisle in 1953. He enlisted with the U.S. Air Force for three years, during which time he married Nancy Miller. Eventually, they settled on Maple Street in Carlisle.

Mr. Jenney was employed in research and development with GenRad, Raytheon, Amicon and Romicon Companies until multiple sclerosis forced him to retire in 1973. He was a devoted father to his son Scott and had many friends and acquaintances who enjoyed many happy conversations with him.

Ed was truly a people person. Despite his disability, he always had a positive outlook and was an inspiration to many and would never ask or let anyone do for him. He was someone you could always talk to, and he would offer advice only if you wanted it. He made people feel good and was able to take any situation and place it in the proper perspective, a quality we will all miss. He will be remembered for always being there for everyone. To honor Ed, we might smile when we think of him, as that is how he would want to be remembered.

He is survived by his son Scott G. Jenney of Brook Street, and his former wife Nancy Miller of Woburn.

A funeral service was held on Saturday, January 20, in MacRae-Tunnicliffe's Concord Funeral Home with Rev. Nicholas C. Ciccone officiating. Interment followed, with U.S. Military Honors, in Woodlawn Cemetery, Acton. Concord's town flag was flown at half-staff on Saturday in honor of Mr. Jenney's service in the U.S. Air Force.

Gifts in his name may be made to: Humane Society, 350 Huntington Ave., Jamaica Plain, MA 02130.

Arrangements were under the care of MacRae-Tunnicliffe's Concord Funeral Home, Concord. For online guestbook, visit:
