Obituary For Edward T Saksa

Edward T. Saksa, 74, of Worcester, MA, passed away peacefully on Wednesday March 30, 2022, surrounded by his loving family. Edward leaves his devoted wife Julia (Papagni) Saksa of 52 years, two loving children and their spouses, Jessica (Saksa) O’Hara and Steve D. O’Hara of Peabody, MA, Edward T. Saksa and Jade (Charpentier) Saksa of Whitinsville, MA; 10 cherished grandchildren, sister Mary Jane Saksa, brothers Leonardo Saksa and Joseph Saksa. He was predeceased by his father Edward T. Saksa, mother Rose (Lanzilotti) Saksa, brother Dennis Saksa, and sisters Roseanne (Saksa) Venuti and Linda Saksa. Edward was a proud veteran of the United States Navy; After service, he joined the Local 7 Iron Workers Union for many years, until opening his own insurance company, Edward T. Saksa Insurance. Edward, known as Fast Eddie by most, could be found at any one of his favorite social clubs on his favorite street, Shrewsbury Street, or a nearby golf course on a warm sunny day. He was a member of every Italian social club from Florida to Massachusetts and was proud of his heritage. Edward retired as a snowbird in Barefoot Bay, Florida, and spent many summers in Westerly, Rhode Island. On any given day Fast Eddie could be found at Capt. Hiram’s while in Florida or Westerly Yacht Club in RI surrounded by his beloved friends. Edward was a party planner by nature, organizing many golf trips and vacation getaways for anyone he considered a close friend-and there were many. No matter where you saw him, he was sharply dressed wearing a crisp starched shirt, pressed pants, and his Italian leather loafers. Edward was the ultimate people person-he could walk into a room with 20 people and leave with 30 close friends. He was most famous for his corny jokes, postcards, letters, notes, and of course his famous $2.00 bills. Above all Edward loved life. He adored his family, especially his grandchildren: Steven, Jack, Vincent, Julia, Natalia, Mia, Olivia, Rocco, Dino, and Lucia- who always thought their Papa was larger than life. Love to infinity. A private family service will be held later.

    Dear Julia & family, So sorry to read in the telegram of Eddies passing, it was a real shocker. I pray that the good Lord will ease your pain and suffering through these trying times for you and your family. I have a lot of good memories of Eddy as an officer of post 3, we ran a lot of functions and good times for the post. I am the commissioner of the senility golf league at Raceway Golf Club and Eddy became a member of the league and we played a lot of golf together and he started the Fast Eddies Sweeps that is still going today. He will be sadly missed by many. Yours in Sympathy Ron Murphy

    To the Saksa/Ohara family, our deepest condolences for the loss of a great freind, family man and person. He will be welcomed at the Pearly Gates by St.Peter, he may even bow to Fast Eddie as he says "welcome aboard Fast" Im sure at that point Fast would slip St. Peter one of his two dollar bills! He will be missed Jane ( Hollywood) and Don Dias ( Westerly, RI)

    To Ed A person I considered to be my brother from another mother. Whenever I needed a go to person for help or advice it was Eddie. You carved a special place in my heart by your love of life, your jokes, your Groucho marks glasses and your how ya doing greeting every time I saw you and that warm smile, and now I can't describe how sad it is to loose you. I know that you are in a better place, with that pressed shirt and a hankie to go with it smiling with your heavenly family. Brother you will be missed by many of us. Love Maria
