Edward H. Boron, 100 years old, of Long Beach, California, formerly of Bondsville and Florence, Massachusetts, passed away at the home of his daughter, Janice, on Thursday, September 3, 2015.

He was born in Deerfield, Massachusetts on January 3, 1915 to Henry and Katarzyna Niejadlik Boron.

He is survived by his daughters Janice Boron of Long Beach, CA and Karen Ksieniewicz and her husband Charles of Florence, MA and his son Edward J. Boron of Belchertown MA.

 

He is survived by six grandchildren: Lora and Brian Ksieniewicz, Courtney Boron, Evan Boron and his wife Carolyn, Jennifer Tonelli Tenczar and her husband David, Louis " Tony" Tonelli and his wife Margaret and four great grandchildren.

 

He is survived by his sister Harriet C. Rogers of Northampton and brother Stanley “Sonny” Boron and his wife Shirley of South Deerfield and his sister-in-law Evelyn Boron of Whately and his many nieces and nephews and their children.

 

He attended schools in Deerfield. He worked as a butcher in his father’s store, Boron’s Market in South Deerfield, with his brother Henry. In 1942, he was enlisted in the Army Corps in World War II, stationed at a base in England as an Army Medic. There he met his future wife Doreen. They settled in Bondsville where he opened his business, Boron’s Market, and where they raised their family.

He was a member of the Elks, the Polish American Citizens Club of South Deerfield, the Swift River Sportsman’s Club of Belchertown, the Saint Joseph's Polish Society of Thorndike and a member of the Hampden County Deputy Sheriffs' Association.

 

As a husband, father, brother and friend, he deeply valued loyalty and trust. As a businessman, he valued hard work and exhibited generosity during difficult times. As a person, he demonstrated a perseverance in purpose, a can-do drive and a creativity in solving daily challenges.
