Edward "Fox" S. Partridge, Jr., 93, of South Windsor, beloved husband of the late Mary (Lanza) Partridge who was the love of his life for 67 years, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at his home with his family at his side. Born in Hartford, the son of the late Edward and Mary (Benzer) Partridge, he grew up and lived in Hartford before moving to South Windsor 37 years ago. Ed was a carpenter and member of the Carpenters Union, Local 43 for over 40 years before his retirement in 1986. He was a finish carpenter on many projects, including Hartford Hospital renovations and Miss McCook's home. He built his first home in the South End of Hartford. Ed proudly served his country in the U. S. Army during World War II in "G" Company, 343th Infantry Regiment, 86th Division. He served in France, Germany, Austria, and the Philippines on Luzon Island at San Fernando North. Ed received several awards during this time. He was a member of the Connecticut Horseshoe Pitchers Association where he earned 18 trophies. He also enjoyed figure skating, but his greatest love was fishing with his grandson Michael, especially on opening day. At 80 years old, Ed helped Michael design and build his recreation room. Family was very important to Ed and was a top priority. He loved going to his granddaughter Karen's recitals and plays and was proud of her life accomplishments. He was also very proud of his grandson Marc when he became a fire marshal and he counted on him a lot for assistance in his later years. Ed was delighted to see the family grow with the addition of Robin and Alex, and being a great grandfather to AJ was a highlight in his life. The bond between them was a sight to see. He leaves with love and affection, his only child and caregiver, Shirley Devanney and her husband Ed of South Windsor; his grandchildren, Michael Devanney and his wife Robin of Ellington, Karen Mezzie and her husband Alex of Wallingford, and Marc Devanney of South Windsor; his great grandson, AJ Mezzie of Wallingford; his sister, Mary Bottaro; his brother, Richard Partridge; two sisters-in-law, Josephine Scott and June Lanza, and several nieces and nephews. He was also predeceased by two brothers, Frank and William Partridge. His family would like to thank his live-in caregiver for the past two years, Flo Martey-Teiko, for her love and affection not only to Ed, but for the whole family. A thank you to the hospice staff who were so wonderful and compassionate. He was very blessed to have them in his life. His family will receive friends for calling hours on Wednesday, January 27, 2016 from 2 – 4 p.m. and 6 – 8 p.m. at the Ladd-Turkington & Carmon Funeral Home, 551 Talcottville Road (Route 83), Vernon.
