Obituary Condolences

CARTON, Dr. Edwin Age 85, of Newton died peacefully on Saturday at Epoch of Weston Rehabilitation Center. A devoted family man, he spent his last days serenaded by arias recorded by granddaughter Nili Riemer Buckert. Ed was born in Baltimore, Maryland on April 27, 1927 to the late Jacob and Gertrude Carton. He attended college at Johns Hopkins University, where he met the love of his life, Lonnie Caming. They were wed in 1949 and celebrated their 63rd anniversary and Ed's 85th birthday at the beach in Rockport this year with their three children, seven grandchildren, and new great-grandson. Ed received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Penn State University and worked as a researcher and manager at a number of manufacturing companies in Pennsylvania and, later, in Massachusetts. Ed and Lonnie loved to travel and shared many adventures in travels on six continents. Ed was passionate about political causes and was never without a considered opinion, on any topic. His love for spirited conversation and competitive games is carried on by his children and grandchildren. Ed's grandchildren called him "Popeye", a name he proudly displayed on his license plate for many years. In addition to his wife, Edwin is survived by son Evan and wife Janis Bergman-Carton of Austin TX and daughters Debbie and husband Yossi Reimer of Rhinebeck, NY and Paula Carton Rossen of Wayland; grandchildren Jacqueline Carton Tame and husband Jonathan Tame, Rebecca Carton and fiance Daniel Dowd, Nili Riemer Buckert and husband Benjamin Buckert, Yair Riemer and wife Jennifer Riemer, Yoni Riemer and wife Lexi Riemer, Hannah Rossen, Noah Rossen and a great grandchild, Amiel Bückert.
