Obituary

Edwin Heber Denty, Waltham Police Officer (ret.),

Of Plymouth, MA formerly of Waltham, passed away, December 7, 2018 in his home. He would have turned 92 on December 11, 2018.

To Mary and her family, my sincere condolences to all. I met Ed and Mary when I joined a bowling league and I was on the team with both of them. Ed was the best bowler in our group and very patient no matter how many gutter balls Mary and I rolled. He will be missed.
