Edmond Burke Nugent, 89, formerly of Barrington


Former Barrington resident, Edmond Burke Nugent, 89, a dear, sweet, loving and sentimental man with an ever present sense of humor, died peacefully on Sunday, April 9, 2017 at his home in Beverly, Mass. following a brief decline.

Born April 25, 1927, Toledo, Ohio, he was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy (McBride Berman) Nugent. He is survived by his sister, Mary Nugent Gehring, of Louisville, Ky. He was also preceded in death by his first wife, Eva Jean (Cash) Nugent, the mother of his 7 children.
