Edward L. Gazeaud

Edward L. Gazeaud, 61, formerly of Jeffrey’s Neck Road, died Wednesday February 13, 2008 in the Peabody Glen Health Care Center, Peabody following a long and complicated illness.

Born in Ipswich August 10, 1946, he was the son of Elsie (MacGregor) Gazeaud and the late Frank Gazeaud. He was a 1963 graduate of Ipswich High School, where he was a member of the Junior Varsity Wrestling team. He served in the US Air Force during the Vietnam War, working as a mechanic on KC 135s air refueling tankers at Westover Air Force Base. Following his honorable discharge he was employed as a mechanic at several area garages and was later employed for thirteen years at Gould Industries in Newburyport. He loved spending time with his family. He could often be seen working on his car or boat, fishing or skiing. He had a contagious laugh, and enjoyed having his coffee at the town warf. He attended the Ascension Memorial Church in Ipswich and enjoyed the Men’s Bible Study at the Ipswich United Methodist Church. He was a member of the Ipswich Outboard Club.

For their years of friendship and caring, his family would like to thank David Drown and family, Trudy Allen and family, other family and friends, the United Methodist Church members, the Peabody Glen Health Care Center, Adult Foster Care Mothers and staff, and the Town of Ipswich Police and Fire Departments.

Private funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich. Those who wish may make memorial contributions in his name to any local veteran’s association.
